-Description
The Day-Date is Rolex's ultimate status watch. Introduced in 1956, it was the world's first waterproof self-winding chronometer wristwatch that displayed the date and day of the week in full spelling on the dial.

The case is made exclusively from 18K gold or platinum. It is the only Rolex watch with a day of the week display, and by using limited materials, it has established itself as the company's top-of-the-line watch.

The Day Date is also sometimes referred to as the 'President's Watch'. The name originated with the presentation of the watch to Dwight Eisenhower, the 34th President of the United States, and it has since been worn by successive presidents.

Reference 1803 is the third generation Day-Date, a vintage model produced from the 1960s to the late 1970s. This example was manufactured around 1962

The case is made of 18K yellow gold. The color is very calm, and although it is a gold watch, it does not stand out too much.

The dial is a champagne dial with a sunray finish. Although it has some patina for its age, it is in very good taste.

The hands are alpha hands only found on early Day-Date. The indexes are unusual claw-shaped markers. In English, they are called "claw marker", but in Japan they are called "wedge marker" because they are shaped like wedge.

The luminous paint on both the dial and hands has faded and is integrated with the dial and hands.

The condensed design of the dial with one step down around the periphery and the raised plastic crystal are characteristic features of a vintage day date with a four-digit reference.

The installed movement is a self-winding Cal.1555. It is a low-beat movement with a 18,000 bph. It was a movement installed in the early model of Ref.1803, and the later model was equipped with Cal.1556, which has a 19,800 bph.

Since the calendar does not have a quick change function, the day of the week and date can be adjusted by moving the minute hand back and forth.
