Rolex Day Date 1986 President Ref. 18038 Factory String Diamond Dial Tight Band Day-Date
WHY THIS WATCH
A timeless watch, the Rolex Day Date is a watch worn by presidents, industry captains, and Hollywood celebs. First introduced in 1956, the Day-Date has enjoyed a cult-like following since it's inception. This particular example is ref. 18038, which introduced a sapphire crystal and single quickset date function. The 18038 was introduced in 1978 and ran for 10 years. This watch is from the tail end of the reference's run (1986), and is in incredible condition given it's age. The biggest fault-line in older Day-Dates is that the band was prone to stretching over time. The band on this example is in excellent condition showing very little stretch. If you're in the market for an older day date with a Factory Diamond Dial, but want a tight band, scratch-resistant sapphire and the ability to change dates on the fly, this watch is for you
THE LITTLE DETAILS
9.3m serial number watch, from 1986. Rolex Factory String Diamond Dial is stunning, and flawless. The 18k Gold case is in excellent condition, with sharp lugs, and showing a small amount of normal wear. The band is also in fantastic shape showing very little stretch. Movement is running strong, and keeping good time, with quickset date working without issues.
No box or papers. The watch was serviced in 2009 at Rolex, however the owner misplaced the original and service paperwork.
