Rolex 18K YG Day Date ref# 1803 circa 1976 “Blue Moon”


An exceptionally pleasing example Rolex Day Date ref 1803 in 18K yellow gold, serial # 4.2 million circa 1976. Very nice condition 36mm diameter full size man’s model with acrylic crystal and with very clean fluted bezel with very pleasing original matte blue pie pan dial signed T SWISS T with applied gold indexes and original gold hands, and with fully intact nicely patina’d luminous dots. Powered by self winding calibre 1565 movement with non quick set date. Shown on a complementary rich blue crocodile Bund style strap or your choice of fine or sporty leather strap. Recently serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers and offered with our usual 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation.

NOTE: Blue dials of this era are very elusive in this fine condition. The blue paint Rolex used for dials in the 1960’s and 1970’s is very prone to fading and flaking, and it is common to find considerable paint loss on such dials. The current example, while not perfect, is unusually well preserved and has aged to a lovely purplish blue hue!



Your watch purchase includes our fine glazed leather WBAW? watch pouch. Great for travel or storage. A $45 value!
