What we love about it ?
Rolex is the best when it comes to making watches in precious metals and stones and while Patek Philippe for instance has always used gold or platinum as a luxury case for their luxurious movements Rolex has had a different vision of luxury. A more ostentatious one we must say but a real vision that inspired many watch manufacturers today. At HORARE we value vision and we value real luxury, while today most luxury items have become a commodity old school bling like this 18049 President still bears with it a special smell of exclusivity and much charm. Also this reference has been produced for a very short period of time and therefore it is very rare. A real investment grade timepiece which will appreciate over time and will definitely make a standout choice on the wrist for any occasion. As Rolex has always been fantastic at.
Sapphire glass – 36mm diameter w/o crown – 20mm bracelet width.
