Rolex is known in the world of vintage watch collecting for being one of the brands that most dared with intriguing designs. The Day-Date wristwatches are among one of the most iconic timepieces from the 20th century. Offering a wide array of materials, textures and sizes over the years, Rolex introduced the celebrated reference 1800 series in the early 1960s, which enjoyed a prosperous production spanning over 18 years before it was discontinued. The considerable variety of models (think of the “bark” finish or the rare smooth bezel) and materials allows you to configure numerous variants suitable to satisfy the most diverse tastes. The one here offered is a charming and precious version of reference 1807 with diamonds bezel. Upon close inspection one will notice the subtile, yet evident satin finish that spreads all over the 36 mm yellow-gold case, a rarity much appreciated among collectors. The peculiarity of the case is also increased by the lavish diamond set bezel. The champagne dial recalls the same motif of the whole watch matching a satin background and a diamond set indexes, further embellished with black text and English calendar. Preserved in fine and nice conditions, this watch is absolutely a rare gem to purchase.
