Description

The Safe Queen Day Date -conditions on watches vary, they can be good, bad or excellent but the best condition is only one, the elusive unworn New old Stock condition.  What we have here is a 100% unworn example of a Reference 1803 Day Date in yellow gold from 1977, assumingly it sat in a safety box for 43 years. The case shows patina on the gold and still retains the case back sticker. The numbers between the lugs are clean and fully intact. Further the watch bears a excellent condition Golden Linen dial with all original Tritium which has aged to a beautiful light brown color. The watch is fitted to a non- Rolex President bracelet which shows the same patina like the case. It was probably sourced separately and is locally made. The condition on this is KING.

THE DAY-DATE 1956

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.

LEADERSHIP

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.
