By Paul Altieri,
Seen for generations as the ultimate symbol of achievement and authority, the Rolex Day-date has become the “must have” watch upon achieving success. Production started in 1958 for the model and helped cement this models place in history by being one of the first time pieces to display both the day of the week and date of the month simultaneously under the dial. The 1803 added the fluted bezel as an upgrade from the polished bezel on the 1802 and the iconic look if the Day-date was born. The final step in locking in the Day-dates reputation was having it be worn by two sitting presidents, Eisenhower and Johnson, thus sealing the nickname “president” to it for all time. This is truly an impressive watch.
This watch is in incredible condition. The 18k, solid, yellow gold case is well preserved and is in great shape. The dial looks incredible with a beautiful silver “pie-pan” dial with fat-boy index markers. The president bracelet is also well preserved with minimal stretch. We are pleased to be able to offer this to you complete with its original box and papers, completing this set and making this watch a great find! Don’t miss it.
