Rolex Day-date 1802 “Honey dial” in 18kt yellow gold
The Day-Date, both elegant and a proof of horological innovation, is without any doubt one of the greatest Rolex’s achievements. Combining elegance, sophistication, and robustness, it was the handy companion of some of the most important men of the 20th century.
This particular piece, a Reference 1802 from around 1960, is finished with a smooth bezel unlike its cousin Reference 1803 equipped with a fluted bezel. We appreciate this note of simplicity that makes it easier to wear.
The general condition of the watch is remarkable, from its case in solid 18k yellow gold to its Italian dial that patinate to a very particular gold tone, everything works perfectly. The watch comes with its Rolex buckle.
For collectors who already own a few vintage steel Rolex watches, this is the next step.
