Rolex Day-Date Ref. 1803 Blue
The Day-Date “Presidential” watch was (and arguably still is) one of the most glamorous watches you could buy when it was launched in 1956. It was only produced in precious metal and has been worn by anyone who's anyone throughout the 20th century, all the way up to today. This incredible 1966 examples happens to be my favorite Ref. 1803 ever produced. The case is incredible with thick and even lugs and the dial is a rare and wonderful blue. This coveted dial is in extraordinary condition and matching perfectly with the ever present custard lume plots. I coudln’t be happier to offer this extremely special piece in the Watch Shop!
*Some marks or spots on the dial are reflections or dust on the crystal and are due to high intensity strobe lighting used while photographing. They are not actually on the watch or visible in natural lighting.
