Rolex Day-Date Ref. 1803 Matte Black Double Punched Papers
The Rolex Day-Date “Presidential” watch was (and arguably still is) one of the most glamorous watches you could buy when it was launched in 1956. It was only produced in precious metal and has been worn by anyone who's anyone throughout the 20th century, all the way up to today. This incredible 1978 example possesses one of the rarest and most attractive dials ever produced: matte black. This extraordinary dial pairs perfectly with the sharp and possibly unpolished 18k yellow gold case and matching Japan made president bracelet which is wonderfully tight. Not to mention this piece features its original and coveted double punched papers. This is truly a special piece and I couldn’t be happier to offer it in the Watch Shop!
