The Reference 1803 is probably the most popular reference of this generation of Rolex Day-Date watches: the present timepiece is an exceedingly gorgeous example of white-gold Day-Date, with the very unusual and enticing diamond-set dial. Preserved in great conditions, the white-gold case is still nice and fresh and overflows onto the argentè dial and is resumed by the hands that shine on the silvered dial. Even more shining are the brilliant and baguette cut diamonds used for the indexes which add a touch of preciousness to this elegant watch. This lot is completed by its original white-gold D’Agosto bracelet, that was at the time the Rolex bracelet supplier for the South America.
