Rolex model no. 1803/ case no. 2544082
18K Y/G vintage Rolex Day-date with Tropical dial
The original black dial has transformed to a brown colored sand blasted surface. However, the wordings are still very clear.
These type of dials are very hard to find and each piece has its own characteristic. Over the years, many of these watches that went into Rolex Service centers were replaced with modern service dial.
This watch is lucky to retain its original tropical dial which gives it a very warm charm.
What were stubbornly retained saw its value gone up many times.
