Rolex Day Date President reference 1803 pie pan dial
Since its release in 1956, the Rolex Day Date “President” has always remained a sought after Rolex model.Â The Rolex Day Date became one to represent success and accomplishment as it was worn by some very influential people. Becoming known as the â€śPresidentsâ€™ watchâ€ť as several US presidents wore one. These included US Presidents such as Dwight Eisenhower, John F Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon. The Rolex Day Date has also been worn by Winston Churchill. Initially the tern â€śPresidentâ€ť referred to the type of bracelet attached to the Day Date, however it soon came to commonly refer to the entire timepiece. The Rolex Day Date 1803 was introduced in 1961 and over the years has undergone some changes. Most notably with the movement, and until recently a now larger watch case.
The pie pan dial is so-called as the edge of the dial is not flat. Rather it is turned down on the edge. This can be seen in some vintage Omega watches as well as Rolex watches. The Rolex pie-pan dial is a lovely subtle feature that has increased in demand in recent years.
