Notes

Small intricacies of the Rolex collectors market still keep fascinating and intriguing collectors worldwide. While the 1803 is well documented, there are always examples that have some rare attributes such as this example. Not only is it distinguished by its very rare pink coloured arabic dial with its matching day and date in arabic, the dial has an even rarer configuration featuring the words " Officially Certified Chronometer" rather than the "Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified" making it an extremely rare combination.
