Rolex Day Date President ref 1803 “Door Stop Dial”18K WG circa 1977
Vintage Rolex Day Date President ref 1803 serial no 5.1 million circa 1977. Featuring 36mm diameter case with fluted bezel and acrylic crystal. This example features a robust case with very heavy lugs that have not been over polished. A well preserved example and a classic “quiet” look of white gold. Original silver satin pie pan dial with applied silver indexes and silver baton hands. This dial is even more interesting as it is the so called “Door Stop”, being called that because the 6 and 9 markers slope downwards to the center of the dial. When you get close and view a profile of the two markers, you can see that obvious reasoning for the nickname.
Powered by self winding caliber 1556 self winding movement with sweep seconds and day and date. The watch is worn on its highly sought after, solid white gold, President bracelet. The bracelet is ample length and especially good condition for it’s age, quite uncharacteristic of earlier Day Date models. Guaranteed genuine, recently serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers and will be offered with a 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation.
Your watch purchase will arrive in our fine glazed leather WBAW? watch pouch. Great for travel or storage. A $45 value! See photo.
