The attractiveness of this Day-Date Ref. 1803 is emphasized by the very rare gold leaf dial. It is believed that only a handful of these dials were been produced during a short period in the early 1970's and they are now highly sought-after by aficionados.

Furthermore, the dial is engraved with the Greek letter sigma on the base at 6 o'clock (σ  SWISS MADE σ).  These 'Sigma' dials usually denoted the use of gold parts on the dial, such as indexes and hands.
