Rolex 18K YG Day Date ref# 1803 circa 1970


A great looking example vintage Rolex Day Date ref 1803 in 18K yellow gold circa 1972. Featuring a 36mm 18K yellow gold case with fluted bezel, acrylic crystal, and very pleasing gloss white refinished pie pan dial with applied gold indexes and gold baton hands. Powered by self winding calibre 1556 movement with non quick set date. FItted with a complementary fine leather olive green strap, or your choice of sporty leather or exotic skin strap. Recently serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers and offered with our usual 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation.

The dial on this model is one you will not see very often. Many customers ask us for white dials, but this model trypically came with a silver satin dial or champagne dial. While this is a refinished Rolex dial, and not the original painted surface, it is an especially pleasing glossy white finish. The gold case and applied gold dial indexes and hands provide a very attractive appearance to this vintage model. Many strap options will complement this example, but we are quite keen on the finely stitched, soft leather olive green strap we have selected.

Your watch purchase includes one of our beautiful handmade Italian leather watch travel pouches, a $55 value!
