Officially released in 1956, the Rolex 6511 Day-Date revived the look and feel of the timepiece. The Day-Date name came from two new features: a window at 12 showing the day and a subsequent window at 3 showing the date. The addition of the day and date added extra complexity to the watch with the addition of the automatic movement day and date discs. The case became much thicker. This, however, was not a bad thing. Aesthetically, the larger, screw-down case, made the watch carry much more presence on the wrist.
The reference we show you appears in the Rolex catalogue in 1961: the mythic 1803, which was produced until 1977-1978 with the introduction of the new five-figure numbering, 18000, which identified not just the model, but also the material. But we are gonna talk about ref. 1803 with an impressive dial in an indefinable colour. Is it grey, is it taupe, it depends on how the dial is catching the light. 18k yellow gold oyster case with pie-pan dial on a suede strap. You can not go wrong with this watch on your wrist!
The strap is from our private label and is available in different colours. But maybe you want another kind of leather or colour. We dare to see that we have the biggest collection in town!
