Rolex 18K YG Day Date ref# 1803 circa 1968

SOLD

An exceptionally fine example Rolex Day Date ref 1803 in 18K YG, serial # 1.8 million circa 1968. Super nice condition 36mm diameter full size man’s model with acrylic crystal and sharp condition fluted bezel with very pleasing original, champagne pie pan dial signed T SWISS T with applied gold indexes and original gold baton hands.

This dial variation with the more pronounced 6 and 9 o’clock markers is referred to as the “door stop” dial. This one is in stunning original condition with bright original champagne finish, no signs of aging or deterioration what so ever, and is a less common version produced without luminous dots and with correct matching non luminous gold hands. Additionally the case is in remarkable condition with beefy lugs, sharp flutes to the bezel and with especially sharp ref and serial #s. We see no evidence of case or lug wear from a bracelet and therefore believe this example was originally sold on a strap.

Powered by self winding calibre 1565 movement with non quick set date. Offered on your choice of fine leather or exotic skin strap. Just back from full service and offered with our usual 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation.

Your watch purchase will arrive in our fine glazed leather WBAW? watch pouch. Great for travel or storage. A $55 value!
