Pink Love - It is known that the majority of all 1803s has been produced in yellow gold and only a small portion in white and pink gold, with the later being the rarest ones. When they come up, we see them mostly on President bracelet but this is different. This fantastic 1803 in pink gold is from 1966 and in overall excellent condition The case is fat and sharp, we bet it hasn't been worn much in its 56 years because its looking so good!. The dial is silver and has beautiful door step markers at 6 and 9. The day is displayed in Portuguese like on other Pink 1803s we have seen. A highlight of this watch is the Swiss Rivet bracelet which is in excellent condition. Really, it is hard to believe that a Oyster bracelet can look that good after 56 years. This watch is a bomb on the wris. The color of the gold is pink and we would say, 'they don't make these any more like they used to". A seriously rare watch in excellent condition.
|Case||Very nice vintage condition case showing light wear from age. The bezel is sharp is also in excellent and sharp condition. The lugs are straight and well defined with sharp edges.|

|Dial||Very nice Silver dial with 6 and 9 door step markers. The lume dots have slightly aged but are original. The hands are pink and matching|
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.
