Rolex 18k Yellow Gold President Ref: 69178

$8,350

Pre-owned Rolex 26mm, 18K Oyster Perpetual Datejust, Champagne dial, 18k Presidential hidden clasp bracelet. Ref 69178

The Rolex President is the epitome of a Rolex watch and what many people think of when they picture Rolex. It wasn’t originally named the President, but only earned that name after being worn by several U.S. presidents. With the date and day on the dial, just as in the Rolex Day-Date, it is a very legible and useful timekeeper. As a member of the Oyster Perpetual family, the Presidential also boasts a waterproof Oyster case and a caliber 2135 Perpetual movement with self-winding technology.  It just so happens to also be a spectacular piece of watchmaking and an icon.

Description

Rolex is recognized throughout the world not only as a brand associated with luxury, but as a watch that is both luxurious and precise.  For Rolex, this hard-won and well-deserved recognition was never in doubt.  The founder, Hans Wilsdorf named the company Rolex so as to be pronounceable in any language as he anticipated the acclaim his company would receive due to relentless pursuit of precision and accuracy in a wristwatch.  Soon after its founding, Rolex produced the first wristwatch to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, which was followed rapidly by receipt of a certificate of precision from the Kew Observatory in Great Britain.  From those roots Rolex built a legacy of innovation.  The “Oyster” watch was the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch in 1926, followed by the first self-winding “Perpetual” rotor.  Building once again on innovation, the “Datejust” became the first self-winding wrist chronometer to include a date in a window on the dial.  Adventurous women and men who strive to achieve what was never before been achieved have chosen Rolex for their expedition, which both perpetuates the brand’s claim to precision and dependability as well as attests to its veracity.  Hans Wilsdorf may have anticipated the acclaim Rolex would someday achieve, but even he might have been impressed its success.
