Patented in 1955 and released only a year later, the Rolex Day-Date presented itself as a watch of undoubted charm but often also very undervalued given its complication that could indicate the day of the week and the date. The watch offered here is a special specimen of Day-Date reference 1804 in White gold with a very rare diamond-set 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 1804 Day-Date started 1959 and was fitted with a diamod bezel rather than the more commonly found fluted bezel. Preserved in very nice conditions, the waterproof case is equipped with a beautiful white gold bracelet with the classic “president” texture. This watch is a part of the small production in white gold under the reference 1804 produced by Rolex, one of the most sought-after Day-Date ever produced.
