A legendary timepiece with an unrivaled history, the Rolex Day-Date has earned its place as "The Ultimate Watch of Prestige" from its decades on the wrists of the world's most influential people. Released in 1956, the Day-Date quickly became synonymous with luxury, prestige, and exclusivity thanks to being the watch of choice for the world's athletes, visionaries, and world leaders alike. Only ever constructed of precious metals, the Day-Date's aesthetic is that of sheer elegance and grace. Aside from the beautiful array of dial options that have been available over the decades, the Day-Date's most iconic piece of design is its three-piece "Presidential" or "President" bracelet. Forming the bedrock of its construction, the Presidential bracelet has become synonymous with Rolex's flagship collection and their desire to create the very best and most iconic watches that the world has ever seen. With its timeless style and inescapable impact on horology, the Day-Date stands as a vivid reminder of just how successful they have been in realizing that very mission.

The overall condition of the watch is excellent. Dial is original and shows no indication of degredation. All lume plots are intact and have matching patina. The case and bracelet have surface abrasions throughout, consistent with average wear. Bracelet has 23 links and is sized for a 7 inch wrist.
This ref. 1803 exemplifies the understated elegance that Rolex is known for. I've always preferred white gold Day-Dates' over yellow gold examples, and this one is particularly pleasing with its tone on tone dial combination.
