When it comes to new Old Stock a lot of Vintage Rolex watches become interesting even if they weren't in used condition but to find a truly rare specimen in NOS conditions is like a lottery win. This exceedingly rare double quickset Rolex Day Date with Onyx dial is such a watch. The condition of the watch lets us assume that this watch has been sitting in a safe place for most of its life. The razor sharp case doesn't show any wear from use rather than a few handling hairlines. The factory case back sticker is 100% intact and the original fluted bezel bears its original factory finishing. Further this watch is fitted an original Onyx dial with matching no-lume hands. Box & papers.

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.
