ROLEX VINTAGE DAY DATE PRESIDENT 1803 SEA FOAM GREEN ENAMEL STELLA DIAL
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, this model also became known as the President not only because its bracelet was named the President bracelet, but also because the watch was worn by numerous American Presidents.
Produced only in 18k gold and in platinum, the Day Date over the years has had some very interesting dials. Our favorite dial is the so called Stella dial, which is hard enamel, and usually a vivid color. Stella dials are extremely rare, and are particularly sought after and collected by watch dealers. No two dials are the same as the enamel paint is mixed by hand for each dial. Rolex made Stella dials for the Middle East market. Ironically, the Rolex dealers could not sell the watches with Stella dials and would actually replace the enamel dials with mundane dials. In fact, the majority of Stella dials were destroyed years ago by Rolex as being commercially unviable. Italian collectors, known for their keen eye for style, are nuts about Stella dials. We are pleased to present this watch with sea foam green original Stella dial.
Original 18k gold case features plastic crystal, solid gold fluted bezel, original screw down crown operating perfectly and massive 18k Oyster screw back. Case is in mint condition and measures 35.5mm diameter by 13.3mm.
Of course the highlight of this watch is the original untouched sea foam green Stella dial. Dial has pie-pan edge typical of 1803 dials, with applied golden hour markers and golden baton hand. Dial is in mint condition with crazing.
Original automatic winding Rolex Caliber 1556 with 26 jewels and adjusted to five positions and to temperature. Movement is a C.O.S.C. Certified Chronometer and is clean and running.
Watch is new brown suede strap with gold plated Rolex buckle.
This rare, important and beautiful wristwatch is in mint+ all-original condition.
