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!

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.
