1967 Rolex Day-Date 18k WG (Ref. 1803) Non-Luminous

$ 8,450

"The Rolex Day-Date is one of the most iconic and beautiful watches in the Rolex catalog. The Rolex Day-Date earned the nickname "President" after it had been rumored that President a Dwight Eisenhower began wearing one, however, Eisenhower wore a Rolex 18K yellow gold Oyster Perpetual Datejust which Rolex gifted to him in 1953. However the nickname President is quite fitting for the day date as  Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, Ford, Reagan, Nixon and Roosevelt,  all wore the Rolex Day-Date and is a symbol of status and luxury as the Rolex Day-Date is only made in precious metals most commonly 18k yellow gold and possesses both the day and date complications within the movement. 

Rolex President Ad

Rolex always finds the perfect balance between luxury and functionality, and this 1967 Rolex Day-Date ref. 1803 really sets itself apart in solid 18k white gold with it's rare non-luminous dial and handset. We love white gold watches as they carry the weight of solid 18k gold with a subtle statement and an extra level of refinement.
