White Gold Day-Date

There are many iconic watches in the world of luxury timepieces, but few have the everlasting fascination and grandeur of the vintage Rolex Day-Date, reference 1803. Vintage Rolex Day-Date’s are highly regarded for their classic design and luxurious materials, and the Day-Date we’re offering here is no different. This Day-Date was manufactured in 1975 from 18k white gold, this covert precious metal gives the watch a sophisticated and elegant appearance. The watch is worn on its original 18k white gold President bracelet from that same year, and remains in a more than fair condition with little stretch – The President bracelet is known for its three semi-circular links and is an iconic feature of Rolex Day-Date models; Finding the original white gold bracelet still attached to the original ‘head’ like we see here, is becoming more and more rare on 1803’s these days.

The dial shows us a matte, silver-gray finish which adds a touch of subtlety to the watch’s overall aesthetic. The matte finish creates a smooth and even surface and even looks white at times, reminiscent of the 1970’s Ghost dial color found on 4 digit Datejust and Day-Date watches. The dial also features a ‘5 minute track’ design. The ‘5 minute track’ refers to the minute markers or divisions on the outer edge of the dial, which are positioned outside the hour markers. This design element enhances legibility and adds a distinctive touch to the watch; a Day-Date instantly looks more sporty when it features such a dial. A key aspect that sets this vintage 1803 Day-Date apart, is its 100% originality. This includes the original white gold winding crown, an often-overlooked component that speaks to the watch’s authenticity. Maintaining the original components adds significant value and allure to the timepiece. This is particularly important to collectors, as originality and authenticity significantly impact the value and desirability of vintage watches.

As always, this 1803 White Gold Rolex Day-Date was fully serviced and the watch will be delivered with our 24 month warranty, our service rapport including some replaced parts, and a handmade leather WWH Ellipse watch (travel) case.
