Rolex 18K WG Midsize President ref 68279 Factory MOP circa 1989


A very sharp condition and scarce 18K WG midsize Rolex Datejust ref 68279 circa 1989. Featuring a very popular and elusive size 31mm diameter Oyster case with fluted bezel and sapphire crystal. With stunning original opaline mother of pearl dial with wrapping arabic indexes and white gold baton hands. An exceptionally clean example with very tight original factory Rolex 18K WG hidden clasp Presidential bracelet.

Powered by calibre 2135 automatic movement with quick set date. Recently serviced and detailed and pressure tested. Guaranteed genuine and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation.

While this model is referred to by Rolex as the “midsize,” it is now an ideal and popular sporty size for women, and an alternative to the considerably smaller 27mm lady’s model. A very scarce model in WG, sporty or understated dressy midsize presidential model. Your purchase includes our signature fine leather pouch, ideal for travel and storage, a $55.00 value.

NOTE: This is a factory Rolex opaline mother of pearl dial, more recent than the production date of the watch, but genuine and authentic. The subtle pearl like opaline surface creates a very rich and fresh look to this model.
