Catalogue Note

The Rolex Day-date 1803 'Wide Boy' has developed a strong following among collectors, for its muscular looks and 1970s design. This particular version omits the lume on both dial and hands, blending the smart non-luminescent looks with the sportiness of the over-sized indexes and unusual hands.
