The present watch is a beautiful and early example of the Rolex Day Date Ref.1802 from 1966. The 1802 reference is defined with the smooth bezel for a much sleeker look and is much rarer than the 1803 with the fluted bezel. This watch is so good in many ways. The original Wide Boy dial is a stunner. The visual effect of the wide markers on the silver dial is magical and catches your eye immediately. We are thrilled to offer this beautiful 1802 with the original box, punched Chronometer Bulletin, Dated Warranty booklet as well as with the rare El Day Date booklet. A Day Date doesn't always need a Stella, Stone or Diamond dial to be special, the Wide Boy is a good example for that.

Arguably one of the most iconic watches ever made, the Day-Date aka the Rolex President was introduced in 1956 and was the first to feature both the day and date in dedicated windows on the dial.
The Day-Date is the top model in the Rolex line-up and comes in an array of configurations with rare and special dials and case decorations. It has only ever been made in precious metals with Automatic movements and historically with an elegant diameter of 36mm - the perfect size for an iconic dress watch.
