Arabian Nights - Hard to believe that this stunning Rolex Day Date 1803 is almost 55 years-old and still looks like it hasn’t seen much wrist time. The yellow gold case is razor sharp but most importantly has retained healthy proportions over the years by not getting much wear from age and has seemingly only been lightly polished. The lugs are thick and well defined, still show factory finishings. The fluted bezel is equally well preserved and adds that iconic Day Date sparkle. The silver Sunburst dial with golden baton markers is near flawless and contrasts beautifully with the yellow gold tone of the case. The cream color aged calendar discs are in Arabic language and add lots of flair. So timeless yet so special
|Case||Excellent fat 18K case that has been lightly polished. The lugs remain straight and even with sharp edges. The fluted bezel is also in crisp condition. Numbers between the lugs are clear and fully intact|
|Bracelet / Strap||Lizard leather strap with generic gold plated pin buckle|
|Dial||Excellent Silver Sunburst dial with baton indexes and original Tritium dots and matching hands|
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.
