Rolex Day-Date President 1803

By Paul Altieri

Rolex developed the Day-Date in 1956. At the time, it was the only watch to offer a movement built with a day and calendar wheel within the perpetual movement. Each feature is prominently displayed on the dial with the date at the 3 o'clock marker and the day spelled out in full at the 12 o'clock marker. The Day-Date is also known for its opulent style. 

Rolex came out with countless variations of the Day-Date over the years and this example has an attractive and desirable combination of white gold with black "confetti" dial. Collectors dubbed this dial the "confetti" dial because when looking at it under a loupe it appears to have tiny specs of red and white that remind us of "confetti."

A great experience overall

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.

Day Date 1803

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

Beautiful watch, small issues

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.

Much better this time

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.

Quick with quality!

No marks or scratches noticeable on a 1970 model. Arrived super fast, and customer service is superb.
