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.

Watch is in overall very good to excellent condition. Case is thick and full, and overall well preserved. Gold hallmark on back up upper right lug is well sharp and legible, as are the serial numbers between the lugs. Dial is signed "SWISS" only at 6 o'clock, and the dial and hands are non-luminous and in mint condition.
Please Note: Due to CITES considerations, if the watch is to be shipped outside of the USA, an alternative leather strap to the existing exotic version, shall be provided.
On a leather strap, the 1803 Day-Date can be somewhat of a chameleon. Simple and clean (as shown), its personality is different from that of its bracelet-clad siblings. That bit more casual and refined, the leather strap injects a sense of everyday wearability to the Day-Date. We particularly love the nuances on this model, including the "SWISS" only designation, and the fact that it was born with non-luminous dial and hands, probably for the Japan market.
