Rolex 18K YG Day Date ref 1803 “Fat Boy” circa 1970


A very pleasing example Rolex 18K yellow gold Day Date ref 1803 serial# 2.6 million circa 1970 with early style open clasp Presidential bracelet. Featuring a 36mm diameter full size man’s model with acrylic crystal, 18K YG fluted bezel, and very pleasing original satin silver “Fat Boy” pie pan dial.  The original dial is signed T SWISS T and features applied gold indexes and intact luminous dots and original tritium gilt hands. Powered by self winding calibre 1565 movement with non quick set date. The watch was recently serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers, and is being offered with our usual 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation.

Many different style dial indexes appear on Day Date models from the 1960’s through the late 1970’s. The current example features a beautiful original dial with a “soft” satin silver dial in very mint condition. In all respects, a great condition vintage Day Date model.

Vintage Rolex & Pre-Owned Rolex Watches

There is no watch brand more associated with quality, prestige, luxury, success, and social status than Rolex. Founded in the UK in 1908 and soon relocated to Switzerland, Rolex is credited with countless technical advances in time keeping accuracy, the introduction in 1928 of the water and dust resistant “Oyster” case, and in 1933, the perfection of the self winding “Perpetual” movement. With sponsorship of sporting events as wide reaching as the America’s cup, to the Daytona 500, golf and tennis tournaments, and expeditions to the far reaches of the world, Rolex has always promoted it’s brand as an icon of success, achievement, and conquest. With popular “tool” watches such as the diver’s Submariner or Seadweller, the Aviator’s dual time zone GMT, the spelunker’s 24 hour Explorer, or the auto racer’s Daytona, Rolex has created loyal followings for the sports minded man. And the dressy Datejust and Presidential models, once the CEO’s trademark timepiece, are now much sought after by both men and woman as a luxury fashion statement. Whether vintage Rolex or more contemporary, your choice of a Rolex will always be a good choice.

All of our pre-owned Vintage Rolex watches are fully restored and guaranteed genuine to give you excellent service and piece of mind.
