|Case||Very strong 18K case with smooth bezel. The case has got a 'sleeve finish' over time' means that the case got the finishing from the shirt cuff usually or a sleeve. Lugs remain crisp and straight.|
|Bracelet / Strap||Excellent and original 18K President bracelet with old style clasp, stamped 63. The bracelet us in very good condition and doesn't have much stretch from use, just some wear from age.|
|Dial||Very good matte black dial with 'dagger' style indexes and matching hands. The dial has a small stain at 9, visible under magnification only.|
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.
