The Rolex 1803 President Day-Date came to market in the 1960s and continued production into the late 1970s. Easily one of the most popular vintage references in the line, the ref. 1803 boasts a classic feature set that includes a yellow gold finish, a 36mm Oyster case, a dial topped with the day spelled out in full as well as the date, and a three-link President bracelet. This reference was also among the first Day-Dates to wear on a President bracelet with a hidden Crownclasp, a fact that has contributed significantly to its success. It's also important to note that the ref. 1803 debuted with a calibre 1555 movement, which was later upgraded to the calibre 1556 that boasts a higher beat and hacking seconds. If you seek a notable preowned Rolex, the ref. 1803 is definitely worth considering.

I was very satisfied with my purchase, an absolutely beautiful piece; I wanted to add that the staff had been phenomenal and helpful. Larry knew his stuff and recommended me getting the 1963/64 model of the Day Date as it has a little out of the ordinary "door stopper" markers and the sword hands, slightly more collectable and different. The Sales team Alex and Tanya was superbly helpful and patient with me.
Perfect condition as advertised. I got great help from Sarah discussing the watch and the process which was easy made me feel safe and secure. I'm happy with my purchase and I will buy another watch from Bob's. This thing is beautiful! It was a good realistic and competitive price without having to go overseas to get it. It arrived at my front door noon the next day And have not taken it off yet!
Awesome watch, great service, great price
The watch is beautiful, for it's age it's been taken care of with an amazing attention to detail. Bob's was easy to work with and quick with shipment.
Arrived exactly as described less than 24 hours after ordering. This was my second purchase of the same Rolex model in about a month. The first purchase did not go well on multiple levels. Bob’s had the best inventory of this particular model, so I gave it another shot.
No marks or scratches noticeable on a 1970 model. Arrived super fast, and customer service is superb.
This watch is in absolutely incredible condition! I was amazed to see that it came with the (or an) original box! If the watch has ever been polished, it was done extremely well because I could not tell.
WAS A GIFT FOR OUR DAD WHO HAD LOST HIS ORIGINAL ROLEX. THIS ONE PUT A SMILE ON HIS FACE AND IS CLOSE TO THE ONE LOST.
The service was excellent ,The watch itself was in excellent condition... I highly recommend , Bob Watches..
