Rolex Day-Date Ref. 1803 - Anthracite Dial with Kit

Sale price$0.00 USD

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 with that iconic yellow gold presidential bracelet, and a rare Anthracite dial. That deep Anthracite & Gold is a truly timeless combination! Furthermore, the dial condition is outstanding featuring fully in-tact lume plots and perfectly matching handset. The outer track of this present example is in outstanding condition and has no signs of chipping or wear, and the Spanish language Day-Disc has no signs of wear or discoloration. As if the rarity and condition was not enough, the watch also retains its period box and handwritten Rolex papers making this a beautiful presentation piece - and all for about half the cost of a brand new 36mm Day-Date! Plus you have something in common with President Eisenhower. How’s that for bragging rights?
