Rolex's ultimate status watch, Day-Date.

Introduced in 1956, the Day-Date was the world's first waterproof self-winding chronometer wristwatch with a dial that displays the date and full-spelled day of the week.

The

case is manufactured in 18K gold or platinum only. With the only day of the week display and limited materials, it has established itself as the finest watch in Rolex.

Day-Date is sometimes called "President Watch".

Its origin began with being presented to the 34th President of the United States, Dwight Eisenhower, and its name was established by the patronage of successive presidents.

Like the

case, the gold bracelet is known as the "President's Breath" and has a strong image of being a "first-class watch worn by successful and leaders."

This Ref.1803 is a 3rd generation day-date vintage model produced from the 1960s to the late 1970s.

The case is made of 18K yellow gold. The color is very subdued, and the impression is that it is not too noticeable even though it is a gold watch.

The reference is written as Ref.1803 / 8 to distinguish it from the later model, Ref.18038. "/ 8" after
1803 refers to the case material, and it is distinguished from "1803/9" for WG (white gold) and "1803/5" for RG (rose gold) in the same model. increase.

Also, the fact that the windshield is made of plastic can be said to be a feature of the 4-digit day-date. From the next generation, the windshield will be sapphire glass.

The dial is a silver dial with a sunray finish. Silver is rare because there are many combinations of champagne gold in YG cases.

It's not a bar hand that is common in day-date, but an alpha hand, so it's more vintage, yet it gives a sophisticated impression.

The outer circumference of the dial has been dropped one step, and the condensed design is a characteristic of the vintage that can be seen in the Datejust of the same 1960s.

When it comes to the next generation Ref.18038, the dial will become flat, and the outer circumference will change to a railroad-like design called a railway circle. The movement equipped with
and
is a self-winding Cal.1555.

This is the machine installed in the previous model of Ref.1803. Since the quick change is not installed, the day of the week and the date can be adjusted by reciprocating the feed and return of the minute hand.

Comes with a light dark brown leather strap using Kaiman crocodile. The buckle is a genuine Rolex GP buckle.

Overhauled by Airy's. The case has been polished (new finish) at the time of overhaul.

Also, the windshield is replaced with a new one at the time of overhaul.

1 year warranty.
