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.

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.
