Rolex Ladies President Datejust, 69178 - 18K Gold & Diamonds


Item No. 5098SH

Today's offering features a stunning modern style President with sapphire crystal, quick-setting date, and original solid center link Rolex Presidential bracelet.

It has been previously fitted with a very high quality diamond bezel. It may be Rolex done, but it is more likely a very high quality aftermarket addition, much nicer than most, that has the fire and looks to the eye like a genuine Rolex bezel.

The Rolex dial, which still has its factory original printing, is set with ten diamonds. The diamonds also may be factory done, but it is more likely it has been previously upgraded with aftermarket set diamond markers. Like the bezel, the diamonds are high quality, fiery and white.

The photos just don't do this one justice!

With the possible exception of the diamond additions, the watch is 100% Rolex down to the new style Rolex coronet etched crystal and gold bracelet spring bars.

Both the watch and bracelet are in beautiful condition. The movement has been serviced and is keeping time essentially on par with a brand new President in five chronometer positions.

Accompanying the watch is a President box and hang tag.

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.

Rolex President:
For many watch connoisseurs, the special Rolex featured here needs no introduction... Nicknamed "The President" after Rolex gave an example of the gent's model to Dwight Eisenhower, it remains the company's flagship model and is the most recognizable elite, luxury watch in the world.

Examples can be found adorning prominent wrists around Hollywood (Jennifer Garner wears an 18K yellow gold ladies President and Angelina Jolie, Gwenneth Paltrow, and Halle Berry all wear ladies Rolexes, to name just a few) and in boardrooms and offices around the world. To own a President is to claim a true distinction.
