WHY WE LOVE IT
Double Quickset Day-Dates were once a thing of fantasy.
Early Day-Date models offered no Quickset functionality, meaning that both the Day and Date functions had to be manually set - with a fair amount of winding, mind you - by the user in order to display the correct information on the calendar complications. by the late 1970s, Rolex had improved the system and began offering Single-Quickset versions in the 'five digit' References based on the 18038. These versions allowed easier setting of the Date function, but you still had to crank through all seven days in order to set the Day. It wasn't until the introduction of the 182XX in the late 1980s that things got infinitely easier.
This particular example, a Reference 18206, dates to circa 1996 and is finished in solid platinum with a beautiful silver sunburst dial with factory diamond-set indices, a factory diamond encrusted bezel, and a matching solid platinum President bracelet with hidden deployant clasp.
This is an absolutely stunning and not often seen configuration comes complete with all its goodies!
If you are looking for a contemporary timepiece that packs a big punch in somewhat of an understated way, this might just be the perfect choice!
The case is in excellent condition overall showing light signs of wear consistent with age and use. Sunburst silver dial with applied diamond indices is in equally excellent condition with matching handset. Signed crown. English language calendar. Factory diamond-set bezel.
