    Description: Kon’nichiwa from the country of the Rising Sun with this super rare and beautiful 1803 with Salmon dial.

    The case is in wonderful condition. Unpolished, it shows full lugs, great edges and a fine matt finish on the top of the case. Anyone who reads my texts carefully, knows that the 1803, when unpolished, must have a gap between the winding crown and the bezel. If you can see the case, it is a good, untouched case.
    The watch has shown signs of wear over the last 50 years, but overall it is a wonderful, untouched case that is a real joy to wear.

    The highlight of this watch is certainly the extraordinary dial. This is a super rare and truly beautiful SALMON dial. These dials are extremely exciting. In total, I know of six of them in the world. All without lume and from different years of manufacture. All of them have no lume, which speaks for the delivery to the Asian region, because dials without lume have often been used here.

    The combination of the white gold case and the strong salmon-colored dial is simply magnificent. I debated for a long time whether I should offer it or keep it. Unfortunately I can’t have them all ^^.

    The condition of the dial is also wonderful. Super clear, even color and wonderful sunray-cut. There is a small line in the lower right half of the dial, but it does not detract from the absolute beauty of this watch.
    The bezel is still extremely sharp and the plexiglas is perfect.

    This Japan Day-Date comes with original Japanese President bracelet with visible clasp. Due to high customs, Rolex has commissioned companies in various countries to produce their bracelets. Japan was one of these countries and so the bracelet also bears the correct “Made in Japan” stamp.

    The condition is great. Light stretch and light signs of wear, but unpolished with a very present crown on the clasp.

    Conclusion: Day-Date Highlight. White gold is rare, but we are talking about a super rare vintage beauty here.
