Description

Pink on Pink       - this is a very stunning example of a Rolex Day Date 1803 in Pink Gold. The color of pink gold from the 1960s era was very warm and strong, bringing out the best of the metal. The case is crisp and sharp, with well defined lugs, very mint for a almost 60 years old watch. The bracelet too is in stunning condition still retaining sharp edges on the link and a good looking clasp. The later Pink dial is in excellent and stunning condition with a matte pink surface enhancing that Pink on Pink look. Though the dial is later it feels like it was made for this watch. Perfect for someone who loves Pink gold.

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.
