The Rolex Day Date is the ultimate classic Rolex, worn by the famous, and the Presidents…
Ever since the launch, it has been Rolex’s signature luxury timepiece, only made in precious metal, and with many interesting dial configurations.
Rare original brown vignette dial with diamond set indices. This stunning dial is rare to find in a four digit reference with “pie pan” edge. These “dégradé” or vignette lacquer dials as they are known by collectors were made in the same way as “Stella” dials. The dial is signed “T Swiss T” referring to the original tritium luminous used on the dial showing a nice patina. The dial has not been touched and remains in excellent original condition with some slight ageing on the edge between 8-9 o’clock.
The reference 1803 in 18k solid yellow gold with fluted bezel. The 5.0 million serial number in-between the lugs denotes to the year of production to 1977 / 1978. This reference features a plexiglass crystal with “Cyclops” magnifying the date display and a gold Rolex Oyster Twinlock screw down crown. We have left the watch unpolished and is in excellent condition.
Original Rolex President 18k solid yellow gold bracelet with concealed clasp. The bracelet is in very good condition with some light stretch to be expected. Bracelets can be resized on request.
