Catalogue Note

The Rolex Day-Date is also called the Presidents' watch, as several US presidents and other important figures have been known to wear it. A fairly big watch when looking at today's versions, this earlier example from the early 80s will be the more subtle and elegant choice. The present watch is retained in exceptional condition with very sharp edges and comes with both the guarantee and a presentation case.
