This platinum Rolex reference 118206 “President” Day Date is overall in excellent condition and comes with the unique ‘salmonish’ coloured “Tropical dial”.
The dial has developed an even vignette effect over the past 23 years: Silver coloured in the centre, warmer toned towards the hour markers. This dial is a work of art in itself and gives the watch a sporty and cool vibe. All luminous material on the dial and hands is working and of course intact.
The day-disc at 12 ‘o clock is executed in the ultra rare Dutch language, an English day-disc is available on request.
The platinum Oyster-case is extremely sharp with the fantastic polish and satin brush combinations.
The “President-bracelet” and original concealed Rolex clasp are in pristine condition and has almost no stretch (maximum wrist circumference approximately 18cm).
The smooth bezel confirms the sporty character of this Day Date.
The watch is fully serviced and slightly touched up, of course preserving the original shape.
All hallmarks, the reference number and the case number are clear and crisp, indicating the production year of +/- 2000 (P90XXXX).
Inside the platinum Oyster case, it houses Rolex’s caliber 3155, which had a full service. The mechanism, beating at a rate of 28,800 A/h is Rolex’s seventh generation Day-Date movement, featuring a highly-practical, double-quick-set date function.
This stunner comes with the big inner- and outer Rolex box, and of course our Timeless Vintage Watches 24 months warranty card.
Considered all facts and figures, this platinum Rolex Day date, with a weight more than a third heavier than a “normal” gold version, can be called the King of Cool above all Presidents.
We think this piece unique is the best under the radar Day-Date configuration possible.
