Rolex Day Date President ref 1803 18K WG “Stella” circa 1970


A fine condition example vintage Rolex 18K WG Day Date President ref 1803 circa 1970 with stunning custom colored dial. Featuring a 36mm diameter white gold case with fluted bezel and acrylic crystal. Featuring an original Rolex day date pie pan dial that has been custom colored a rich and beautiful semigloss turquoise blue color that resembles the highly sought after Stella dials of this era.

This stunning watch features an especially beefy lugs case, not worn or polished down, with sharp and distinct reference and serial #s, and a sharp and not worn or polished fluted bezel. The dial and hands are the non lume version, as evidenced by the original hands which lack the narrow center luminous strip. This stunning watch is powered by self winding caliber 1556 movement with sweep seconds and day and date. This era model does not have a quick set date change function.

Shown on a complementary clay colored finely stitched dress straps, or your choice of alternative sporty or dressy strap, and fitted with a aftermarket steel Rolex logo tang buckle.

Guaranteed genuine, recently serviced and pressure tested by one of our veteran watchmakers and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation. Your purchase includes one our our beautiful handmade Italian leather watch travel pouches, ideal for travel and storage, a $55 value!

Note, this model and some other Rolex models from our site can be offered with alternative dial colors. We can also custom color the dial on your Rolex and give your watch a fresh, playful, and contemporary look. Inquire about our pallet of rich and beautiful “Stella-like” colors.

Note: While a white gold day date model could initially be confused as a stainless steel watch as it appearance is quite similar to the Datejust model of the era, remember that the Day Date Presidential models were never offered in stainless steel,  or 2 tone, only precious metals, yellow gold, rose gold, platinum, and in this fine example, white gold. Many of our clients appreciate the subtlety of the more “quiet” white gold metal, certainly less showy than the yellow gold versions.
