Rolex - Day-Date Bark Ref. 1807
A true pioneer we have here before us. The Rolex Day-Date was the first waterproof automatic watch that was chronometer certified and displayed the date and day of the week when it was introduced in 1956.
The watch is a direct knock out. White gold case with "Bark" finish and original matching President bracelet and blue pan-pie dial. This, or something like it, might be what Rolex heaven feels like. By the way, the name Bark comes from the fact that this finish looks like the bark of a tree.
Because of the exclusive production of the watch in precious metal until today, there are only the "Lucky Few" who wear such a piece on their wrist.
The here presented series 258XXXX belongs to the second generation of the Day-Date and was produced in 1970. Inside, the caliber 1556 ticks without Quick-Set function.
The 36mm case in 18K white gold is in excellent condition for its age. Sharp horns and little wear and no apparent damage or scratches. Dial is original to the period.
President bracelet, is in very good condition. Slight stretch is present. The clasp is stamped "2/71" - perfectly matching the serial number.
The watch has been fully serviced by our workshop and comes with a 2 year warranty.
