Catalogue Note

This reference 1803 Rolex Day-Date is a very rare example in incredibly original condition. The dial is highlighted with a gold Khanjar applied at 6 o’clock. It is rare for a gold Khanjar to be applied to the dial rather than stamped. The case number is also repeated on the inside of the case back which has also been stamped with RWC LTD together with English hallmarks. The bracelet is original and stamped for the first quarter of 1972 and the presentation box and punched guarantee are signed Asprey.
