The Day Date is Rolex’s top-of-the-line watch. Displaying the day of the week below 12 o’clock and the date at 3 o’clock, it became known as the President because the watch was worn by numerous American presidents. It is glamorous, luxurious and can be found with a variety of bracelets, bezels, gold finish designs and, most of all, dials. One of the most appreciated and sought after by passionate and collector is surely the “Stella”, which is enamel and usually with a vivid color. The present reference 1803 has been manufactured in yellow gold with a tiled-decorated bracelet and is equipped with one of the most intriguing Stella variants ever: the green one. Moreover, it is the dark green version of enamel and thus really collectable. Masterfully crafted and preserved in perfect condition is fitted with the rare diamond hour markers set, original golden baton hands and the outer black track. Surely an extremely appealing version, the present lot also strikes for the quality of its case.
