Catalogue Note

The Rolex reference 1802 was introduced in 1963 alongside its sister reference the 1807. The reference 1802 has a smooth bezel as opposed to the 1803 with its fluted bezel. This makes the 1802 a much rarer and harder to find timepiece. In this configuration featuring the unusual grey dial, this watch becomes a true collector’s piece due to its rarity.
