Rolex Day-Date Ref. 1803 - Thin Buckley Dial

Sale price$13,200.00 USD

Straight Facts

When the Day-Date was released in 1956, it was the only complicated Rolex for sale. Hard to believe, but people didn’t want Rolex’s previous attempts at complicated wristwatches. All of that changed when President Dwight D. Eisenhower was spotted wearing the Rolex, and the watch became known as ‘The President’. An internationally known symbol of success and prestige, the Rolex Day-Date was available for many years on a strap or matching solid gold bracelet. This present example is fitted to it’s matching - and iconic - president bracelet with a hidden clasp.

Furthermore, this watch features what is known in the collector community as a ‘Thin Buckley’ dial which has printed roman numeral indices. What makes it a ‘thin’ dial is that the Roman Numerals are printed much thinner than in most applications. The outer track of this present example features beautiful matching lume, and the all-black handset really pops against the dial. Utilizing an Spanish language day wheel, and all for less money than a brand-new Rolex Submariner Date , this watch represents an incredible value. Not to mention you can say you have something in common with President Eisenhower. Hows that for bragging rights?

From Rolex & Patek Philippe, to Cartier & Audemars Piguet. As collectors first, we love the small details that separate the Submariner from Daytona and Calatrava from Royal Oak. This is why you'll find our curated assortment spans decades of generations of models and brands. We believe that watches don't just tell time, they tell history - and life is too short to wear a boring watch.
