This 1971 white gold Rolex Day-Date ref. 1803 can be worn to any occasion; with a tee shirt on a casual Sunday, or put on a strap and worn with a suit, this watch has the potential to be your only watch or perhaps the one you wear most often.

In 1956, the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date made its debut. Available only in 18 ct gold or platinum, it was the first wristwatch to display the date and day of the week spelt out in full in a window on the dial. With the President bracelet, originally created specially for it, the Day-Date continues to be the watch par excellence of influential people.


Rolex watches have long been associated with those who have, over time, guided the destiny of the world. No matter their vision, their domain of excellence, or their achievements, the one thing these exceptional men and women have in common is often their watch: the Day-Date.
