Rolex Day-Date 1803 'Cherry Stella'


Nothing quite beats a 4-digit Day-Date in yellow gold. Let alone one with a red, cherry colored, Stella dial. During the 1970s and 1980s Rolex offered brightly colored lacquered dials, nicknamed ‘stella’ by Italian collectors, as an option for the Day-Date. This option wasn’t particularly popular. After all, you had to be a gentleman (or lady) of considerable means to be able to afford a Day-Date and it was unlikely that a person of that stature would rock a gold watch with such a loud, dare we say gaudy, dial. As a result, stella dial Day-Dates are very collectible nowadays. This red-colored dial on this ref. 1803 changes colors in every light and and is in perfect harmony with its 18k yellow gold applied indices. The watch comes in the classic Day-Date packaging: a 36 mm 18k yellow gold case with matching fluted bezel and an 18k yellow gold President bracelet. The watch houses Rolex’ caliber 1570 self-winding movement. The watch is in great condition, with a sharp case and tight President bracelet.
