This watch just came out, and we are the ones that have it. And here we are for the box, it has come with a new 20015 box, and here is the watch. Bam. Very beautiful 40 millimeter, they changed from the 41 millimeter to the 40 millimeter, and it has a ice blue dial, and it's made out of platinum, which is even more expensive than gold and rose gold, yellow gold and rose gold. And I'm gonna show you a few things about it, I'm gonna show you how to set it, talk about a few of the cool things regarding it, such as this president band. This kind of band here, you see, is called the president band, it looks similar to the jubilee band except it's a little bit, it's just a little bit thicker, and as you can see here, it has a brushed polish on the outside links with a polished center, and it has this F, it has this flat buckle style clasp here, and I'm gonna show you, if you look at the case back, on the platinum, it will have these hallmarks, which are very similar to the rose gold or the gold hallmarks, the difference being that it's gonna say 950 PT instead of 750, and that's because of the weight. So if you thought gold was heavy, well guess how much heavier platinum is gonna be. You see where my pointer is? The pointer is where the hallmark is. Right there, at the end of the four lugs. Right there. And each hallmark on the bottom left is gonna say 950, and on the upper right hand corner you're gonna have the Saint Bernard, see? I take that back. I don't know what the upper right hand corner is. It's hard to see without a loop. The bottom left hand corner, you're gonna have the 950, and the upper left hand corner, you're gonna have the Rolex insignia, right there. Okay, and then right on the clasp itself, as you can see where my pointer is, you're gonna have those same hallmarks, 950 PT, signifying platinum, okay? And then as I turn the watch over, I'm gonna show you how to set this. You pull it out one click, that will allow you to wind it, so if I were to turn it like this, that winds the watch. The second click, right there, I'll turn it clockwise, and you guess which one this one turns. Probably the date. We're right, rolls the numbers through here, a nice even click if I move it clockwise, guess what happens if I move it counterclockwise. Day. There we go. It's moving through the day, it should move evenly, it should stop right on the click, so that's the second, second knob, or second stop. If I pull it one more, the second hand stops, and I can set the time. It should move evenly throughout, and when I press it back in, the second hand starts again. I'm gonna screw it in, and that completes the time setting. So just to recap, pull it out to the second stop, turn it clockwise, it turns the day, if you turn it counterclockwise, it changes the day, as in Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday day. Now let's take a look at this watch on a wrist, see how it looks. Let's see what all this money buys you. And there it is. A Rolex Day-Date Platinum 40 millimeter ice blue dial, 228206.
