Rolex President 18K Ref 1803

$8,395

Pre-Owned 36mm 18K Yellow Gold Rolex Day-Date on black Crocodile strap, Ref. 1803

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.  It just so happens to also be a spectacular piece of watchmaking and an icon, particularly with this reference’s pie pan style dial. While this watch comes on a crocodile strap as opposed to a gold bracelet, this makes the watch a less expensive option for anyone who has wanted to add an iconic Rolex Presidential watch to their collection.

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 its relentless pursuit of precision and accuracy.  Soon after its founding, Rolex produced the first wristwatch to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, which was rapidly followed by 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, 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.
