The 1803 Rolex Day-Date never fails to get our attention here at Tempo and Time – it’s without doubt one of our favourite watches to stock. Still going strong since its introduction in 1956, the solid gold Day-Date continues to epitomise the height of luxury. We love how the 1803 on a strap can look just as good casually as it does with formal attire. This particular 1803 boasts a stunning champagne step dial, making this an almost flawless example of one of Rolex’s most iconic watches.
This watch has all the hallmarks of a well loved vintage watch. It is in excellent condition for a 1976 model. Its bezel and crown remain sharp and the lugs and case are nice and thick without any major scratches or dents. It comes fitted with a beautiful domed plexiglass without the typical ‘cyclops’, which we feel gives it a unique and extra sleek appearance. The watch comes with a gold-plated Rolex buckle on a high-quality Italian leather vintage strap attached using solid gold pin bars; plus a Rolex travel/service pouch.
