Today's offering showcases this stunning T serial President with sapphire crystal, quick-setting date, and original newer style fully solid link Rolex Presidential bracelet.
It has previously been fitted with a large high quality aftermarket channel set diamond bezel that is very striking. The diamonds are white and fiery.
With the exception of the large channel set bezel, which was previously added, the watch is fully Rolex down to the band spring bars and in beautiful condition. The bracelet shows little stretch. The photos just couldn't do the watch justice.
The watch has just been fully serviced by our Master Watchmaker. The servicing consisted of disassembling the movement, carefully inspecting each part, replacing any overly worn components with Rolex parts, reassembling and lubricating the movement, replacing all of the waterproofing seals with new Rolex gaskets, and timing testing and regulation (a $695 value).
It continues to keep time on par with a new President.
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.
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.
