The Rolex Day-Date was released in 1956. The 1803 has a caliber 1556 automatic movement and a champagne dial which displays the day of the week in addition to the date. "President" was originally the term for the bracelet, but became the well-known nickname for this piece. Many US presidents are known to have worn the Day-Date. Many other influential men also wore this watch, Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King Jr, BB King, Tiger Woods, Eric Clapton, Jay Z, and Brad Pitt, to name just a few.
In 1972, Rolex added a new feature to the President Day-Date. It is commonly referred to as the "hack" feature and allowed for wearers to stop the second hand if he or she wanted to reset the time to fit another more accurate source. This vintage 1973 Day-Date is among the first to be released with this feature. A true part of Rolex history.
