DIAL
Original black "confetti" dial

Original black “Confetti” dial with baton indices. These dials are referred to by collectors as “Confetti” dials due to the very small flecks of red, blue and green within the paint that can only be seen with an eye glass. These are rare dials that have been become highly sought after by collectors. They are also referred to as “pie pan” dials due to the sloping edge of the dial. This detail is why these four digit Day Date references are much admired amongst collectors. The dial is signed “T Swiss T” referring to the original tritium luminous used on the dial. The dial has not been touched and remains in excellent original condition. Most of the tritium lume plots have degraded slightly which is a common feature with these “Confetti” dials.

CASE
18k solid yellow gold case with fluted bezel

Ref. 1803 in 18k solid yellow gold with fluted bezel. The 3.5 million serial number in-between the lugs denotes to the year of production to 1974 and corresponds with the original Rolex guarantee paperwork. This reference features a plexiglass crystal with a “Cyclops” magnifying the date display and a gold Rolex Oyster Twinlock screw down crown. The case has been professionally polished by our watchmakers giving the watch a stunning aesthetic. The yellow gold bezel has been sympathetically cleaned by hand so that it retains the original fluted edges. This is one of the reasons why our watches are presented in the highest quality in terms of condition.
