Watch details

This is a most uncommon combination, pairing a ref. #1807- correct for a “bark” bezel Day-Date, with a green pie pan vignette diamond dial. The watch is entirely of original Rolex manufacture and has been beautifully preserved- the case is mint and the dial is beautiful. Green is Rolex’s signature color and green is the most rare of the colors offered in the vignette series, where the color fades very gently from light in the center to darker around the outer edge of the dial. This piece would make an outstanding addition to a collection of Stella dial Rolex watches and would find itself at home with the most discerning of vintage Rolex enthusiasts. 18k yellow gold. 36mm.

THE DAY-DATE 1956

In 1956, the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date made its debut. Available only in 18 ct gold or platinum, it was the first wristwatch to display the date and day of the week spelt out in full in a window on the dial. With the President bracelet, originally created specially for it, the Day-Date continues to be the watch par excellence of influential people.

LEADERSHIP

Rolex watches have long been associated with those who have, over time, guided the destiny of the world. No matter their vision, their domain of excellence, or their achievements, the one thing these exceptional men and women have in common is often their watch: the Day-Date.
