    About This Watch

    We are proud to present this stunning Rolex Day-Date President watch for sale.

    Originally launched in 1956, the Rolex Day-Date President has remained as the brand’s signature luxury watch. Exclusively crafted in precious metals, few luxury watches come close to the prestige, excellence, and timelessness of the Rolex President. When Rolex introduced the Day-Date, it was the first watch include the day of the week written in full at 12 o’clock along with the date window at 3 o’clock. Another hallmark of the Rolex Day-Date is its bracelet, officially named the ‘President’ bracelet. Characterized by its semi-circular links, the President bracelet is almost as famous as the timepiece itself, not to mention the icons who wore one.

    This version the reference 18038 was originally launched in 1977 and was made until 1988. The most noticeable change for this model was the addition of the new high-beat calibre 3055 movement which allowed a quickset of the date feature, making it even easier to use for the wearer. Still set in the classic 36mm Oyster case with a fluted bezel, this watch comes with a stunning champagne coloured dial with applied gold baton hour markers and printed black Roman numerals around the chapter ring. Sapphire crystal glass is fitted to the watch and it comes on the iconic matching gold President bracelet with a folding clasp.

    Originally purchased in circa 1978 and in a superb condition considering its age, this Day-Date comes with its original inner buckle box, Day-Date instruction booklets and Rolex handkerchief. It is sold with a 12-month warranty from SWC.

    This is a lovely example of a complete set and the condition of the bracelet is so good for a 35-year-old watch. A must have piece for and Rolex enthusiast.
