  • Free worldwide delivery

This 1802 reference Day-Date is more rare then its sibling, the 1803. Because of the smooth bezel finish it comes off as way sleeker. Especially paired with a leather strap it makes up for a perfect dresswatch.Besides the uncommon bezel finish the dial is what really stands out on this late 60's Rolex. The colour is most similar of that of a cappuccino, especially with the white text representing the milk foam. Furthermore the Pie-Pan dial has an Arabic 5 minute track at the end of there baton markers. The day disc is in English and the watch is powered by cal. 1556.


Rolex Day-DateIn 1956, Rolex introduced one the most iconic watches ever made: the Day-Date. The Day-Date was the first waterproof self-winding chronometer certified wristwatch with a day and date function. And to top it off, it was only available in gold or platinum! Rolex also designed a new three-link bracelet, known as the ‘President,’ to pair with this special watch. With exception of the most modern executions, the Day-Date comes exclusively in a 36mm case.REF. 18xxA new era dawned for the Day-Date when the earliest references (65xx & 66xx) were replaced by the 18xx series in 1959, which contained the cal. 1555 and later the cal. 1556 movement.The 18xx Day-Date was produced with a wide variety of dial colors and configurations. Characteristic for this era is the so-called ‘Pie-Pan’ dial that looks like an upside-down pie-pan (a concentric ring that slopes down from the flat centre).The last two digits of the 18xx references indicate the type of bezel or the bezel/case decoration:

  • 1802: Domed/polished bezel
  • 1803: Fluted bezel
  • 1804: Diamond-set bezel (and dial)
  • 1806: Florentine-finish bezel and case
  • 1807: Bark bezel
  • 1811: Engraved (Morellis or Moire) bezel and case
