The watch offered here is a special specimen of Day-Date reference 1802 in platinum with a very rare smooth bezel and a silver dial with diamonds indexes with brilliant and baguette cut and rectangular window showing the day at twelve o’clock and the date shown at three o’clock. The production of the reference 1802 Day-Date started 1959 and was fitted with a smooth bezel rather than the more commonly found fluted bezel. Preserved in very nice conditions, the waterproof case is equipped with a beautiful platinum bracelet with the classic “president” texture. This watch is a part of the small production in platinum under the reference 1802 produced by Rolex, one of the most sought-after Day-Date ever produced.
