This Rolex ‘Day Date’ 18ct Automatic, has the Cal.1556, Superlative Chronometer Grade (highly accurate and highly reliable) automatic movement with Day and Date function. The dial is the rarer ‘Blue Two Tone’ dial which as you will see, is primarily blue fading to black. The Rolex Oyster case with it’s screw down crown and screw down case-back made the Rolex Day Date the world’s first waterproof automatic wristwatch with Day and Date functions. Also to offer “complete protection against water, perspiration and dust”.
Here we have the beautiful Rolex two tone blue dial with the gold Rolex signature Crown at 12 o’clock along with the Day function at 3 o’clock. As you will see, the dial is primarily blue, fading to black. This is the rare original dial which has been restored to the very highest Rolex standard. It also has classic ‘Stick’ hands with batons marking each hour and small outer minutes track. The dial and gold ‘stick’ hands are all in immaculate condition. In addition to the signature Rolex crown, the dial is simply signed Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day Date along with Officially Certified ‘Superlative Chronometer’ and ‘Swiss’ at the very bottom of the dial. The mint condition heavy duty lens has no marks and a 2.5 x magnifying glass making the date easily readable at arm’s length.
This is the original Swiss hallmarked 18K solid gold case, measuring 36mm in diameter without the crown. The case has an unmarked fluted bezel and highly polished full thickness case-back showing it has never been inscribed. In fact all of the case is in immaculate condition having been lightly cleaned and carefully polished. Inside the case-back are two Swiss 18ct hallmarks and 0.0750 18K. Also MONTRES ROLEX SA GENEVA SWITZERLAND and the model number 1803.
