The Bark Full Set - Day Dates have been made in a wide variety of configurations differing in bezels, case decorations, bracelets and diamond settings. One of them is the 1807 reference with Bark finish.

The silver dial with baton markers is in equally pristine condition and still bears all Tritium dots without a loss. The hands are matching and original.

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.
