Rolex Day-Date Ref. 1803/9 - 'Ghost Dial'

Sale price$0.00 USD

Straight Facts

There is something to be said about flagship watches - and in the world of Rolex there is no more prestigious watch than the Day-Date, or President. Worn by heads of state, CEOs, celebrities, and anyone who’s ‘made-it’ - the Day-Date has only ever been made in precious metals - and white gold is not only one of the stealthier ways to do a solid-gold Rolex, but its also one of the rarest. While the case is identical to any 36mm Day-Date the white gold adds an understated stealth-wealth level to this piece.

The watch has an ‘if you know, you know’ element to it, and the presence of an extremely rare ‘Ghost’ Dial enhances that while giving the watch a monochromatic flair. While unkown if these started out as darker grey dial that aged - or made as an extremely attractive light grey - when combined with light printing, these rare examples are known as ‘Ghost’ dials. Every lume plot is perfectly preserved and matches the handset without exception. The case of this watch represents a similar story, appearing in excellent overall condition ad exhibiting no signs of rough-play - befitting the type of person who would have likely purchased this watch new in period! Fitted to the iconic Presidential bracelet, this monochromatic mid-century marvel is a treat for any discerning collector. For those who want the best, there can only be one choice - The Rolex Day-Date.

*Some marks or spots on the dial are reflections or dust on the crystal and are due to high intensity strobe lighting used while photographing. They are not actually on the watch or visible in natural lighting.

"As collectors themselves, Oliver and Clarke are on a mission to make buying vintage watches as painless as possible."

"The company focuses on good prices for its pieces, elite customer service and full transparency."

"The appointment-only space is inviting, with comfortable seating areas and exposed brick walls."

From Rolex & Patek Philippe, to Cartier & Audemars Piguet. As collectors first, we love the small details that separate the Submariner from Daytona and Calatrava from Royal Oak. This is why you'll find our curated assortment spans decades of generations of models and brands. We believe that watches don't just tell time, they tell history - and life is too short to wear a boring watch.
