Date With a Rolex

Sometimes you're just in the mood to indulge in a classic. The Rolex Day-Date is just that indulgence.

Okay, I confess, like a crush from afar, I've always wanted one.

I'm carried away by Rolex's snazzy video on their website advertising the watch. It's very smooth: modern and classic at the same time. The Day Date can be had in white gold, yellow gold, Everose gold or platinum. It comes in two sizes: 36 mm and 41 mm. carries the platinum version I covet (with the blue dial) for a mere $42,975.

That stops me cold.

There is a number at which I simply cannot imagine justifying a purchase. $42,975 would be that number.

Fortunately, Rolex makes the equally coveted Oyster Perpetual, one model of which can be had here for a mere $3,142. With a lovely pale pink face, it isn't quite as nice as the pale blue, but I have faith that if I wait around for a year or two, my blue face might come out in steel.

And then? Whatever my mood, I'll indulge, and my crush will finally become the love affair it was always meant to be.
