A very nice example of an all time classic watch, the Rolex Day Date 1803. This reference has been produced from 1961 until 1978 in different precious metals. This current watch is in 18K white gold and one of the earlier examples bearing 'Swiss' on the dial at 6.The beautifully aged lumes on the dial are still present and fully intact. The hands seem later replacements and don't have lume. The unique dial color gives the watch an amazing overall look and the arabic calendar discs make this piece a true gem for collectors.
|Case||Very nice 18K white gold case in vintage condition with some wear from age|
|Bracelet / Strap||Original white gold President bracelet with some wear from age. Clasp stamped 2/63|
|Dial||Excellent and correct 'Swiss' silver dial that has aged to a champagne hue. The calendar discs are arabic.|
Arguably one of the most iconic watches ever made, the Day-Date aka the Rolex President was introduced in 1956 and was the first to feature both the day and date in dedicated windows on the dial.
The Day-Date is the top model in the Rolex line-up and comes in an array of configurations with rare and special dials and case decorations. It has only ever been made in precious metals with Automatic movements and historically with an elegant diameter of 36mm - the perfect size for an iconic dress watch.
