By Paul Altieri,
Adored by watch lovers the world over, the Day-Date is symbolic of both Rolex as a company and its power over the watch marketplace. Released to the public in 1956, the Day-Date was a thing of beauty and an unambiguous statement of the owner’s power and prominence. The well-balanced dial, as well as the day and date display were new innovations for the time. The reference 1803, which was the second series of Day-Dates released in 1959 and can be identified by the yellow gold, fluted bezel (unlike the 1802 with its smooth bezel, and the 1804 with white gold or platinum bezel set with diamonds). The 1803 has adorned the wrists of several U.S. Presidents throughout history (hence the name of the President’s bracelet). In an age where it is no longer a necessity to use a watch to tell time, the Day-Date model has become something to own to commemorate an achievement or remember an important date thus morphing away from a mechanical necessity to a personal and intimate piece of jewelry that any man can love and cherish.
This 1803 was manufactured in 1971 and is a 3.0 million serial number timepiece. The non-quick calendar is printed on champagne toned discs to completely match the dial thus providing a seamless appearance. The beautiful champagne linen dial is in superb shape and lends the watch an unmatched aura of power by making the watch one solid gold color. The president link bracelet is in equally good shape with minimal stretch and a traditional buckle. A solid gold Rolex Day-Date is something everyone can aspire to. Don’t you think it is your turn?

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.
Seems to be the real deal and beautiful watch Quick shipping
Great watch in good condition
Have purchased from you before … ALWAYS satisfied. Also, have dealt with Laura before. Extremely knowledgeable, personable and professional.
I love it. My first Rolex. I would start collecting. And the shipping and delivery was super fast.
