Rolex Day-Date Ref 1803 - White Gold Patina Dial
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 beautiful silver sunburst dial has aged to an incredibly stunning and unique color-way. The dial itself is a rare no-lume example and has taken on this two-tone color as it almost looks like a speckled egg! The case of this watch - on the other hand - shows no signs of rough-play and is perfectly preserved in it’s unpolished state - befitting the type of person who would have likely purchased this watch new in period! Fitted on one our handmade tan leather straps, this represents and exceptional choice for daily-wearer, without having any of the pretension or ostentatiousness that a solid gold Rolex can typically confer. 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.
