Nope. Better ones are available and that one would need a major restoration. Very badly worn, one of the worst I have seen.

Its genuine but it is really stretched out. You are going to pay between $1500-2000 to have that bracelet rebuilt. It also has 55 end links which wont fit your 1803

Thanks guys! This is another option, it has some numbers at the clasp top above the Rolex logo "S 180000" is this genuine?

Looks good from what I can see f18000 is ok on these bands at this time. Better pics of mall marks needed though
