Here's my contribution. I was looking for an 1803 in the best possible condition (ie. sharp fluted bezel, minimal bracelet stretch, etc.) and box/papers would be a huge plus:

Is the 1803 the best DD reference Rolex ever created?

Wow! Fullset! I was happy that mine was all original and came with the inner and outer box. Congratulations! Wear it in good health for years to come. That's almost a grail find as these fullsets are becoming more rare with each passing day.

How do 1803 owners deal with lughole gaps that are common with this reference?

God, I love this dial. When I was in the market I had to choose between a gold diamond dial or the Grey slate. I really wanted a diamond dial and that's what I bought. I have no regrets but man I love the slate dial so much.

Stunning example! Man, I wish I could wear yellow gold! It just doesn't look right on me. But if I could, it would be a YG 1803.

I miss my WG example!

Sorry for the noob question, but how much would one of these cost in good condition on a leather strap? A more common dial, not some super rare one. Also, what does a factory Rolex buckle look like for the older day-dates in strap look like? Thanks and beautiful watches everyone!

A little controversial, but now on a nato with gold hardware. Just need a no-cyclops crystal. Do you recommend OEM or aftermarket?
