Now as I'm starting to look more and more into the world of gold watches from Rolex, I have the same thoughts as when looking at more normal sports models.
In the start I just looked at the classic Rolex Day Date - with president bracelet and the clean yellow dial with baton indicators.
Let me tell you - that was the start for an hunt that are still ongoing. First I looked after these version of the day date, then I started looking at dials with roman numerals on, then on gold date-just and then again on day date with dark color dial.
The I started looking at different model version 18038 or 18238, and then again should it be watch only or complete set.
- Model : Day Date - Date-Just are nice but I have a little history on the day date - I never thought I would own this watch - so getting it would be proving me wrong
- Version : Model 1803 - I think I can live with the 1803 version - classic - no need for quick-set of the day.
- Dial : Gold dial with baton index - Simple but classic - I think that will be the model - but the dark dial has not left me
- Bracelet : President - what else
- Condition : Nice - not to polished, as original as possible
- Box/Papers: Nice - but not mandatory - not a deal breaker
- Safe Queen: NOT - none of my watches are safe queens - NOT and NEVER
Well the hunt is still ongoing - what will I find, what will I land....
BUT the risk is there that I will start to look at my grail gold watch - the gold rolex sub 16808 -
I will let you know
