-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 1967.

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 a little patina for its age, it is in very good taste.

The hands are bar hands and the indexes are thin bar indexes, with two bars in parallel only at 6 and 9 o'clock. Due to its multi-faceted cut, it appears black from some angles.

The luminous paint is applied only to the hands, but it has faded and become one piece. The condensed design with the outer edge of the dial lowered by one step and the raised plastic crystal are features unique to the vintage Day-Date with a four-digit reference.

The movement is the automatic Cal.1556, an updated version of the Cal.1555, it used in the later reference 1803. A hack function has been added and the frequency has been increased to 19,800 vibrations.

Since the watch does not have a quick change calendar, the day and date are adjusted by moving the minute hand back and forth.
