18038 Onyx Day-Date

The Rolex Day-Date with Onyx stone dial is available in three styles, or rather three dials with minor differences. This distinction is the printed text at the six o’clock position, which reads: Swiss Made, Swiss, or T Swiss T, with the latter being the original and most rare execution of the three, and one that is quite hard to find. That is why we are delighted to present to our clients this superb, all original and unique TswissT Onyx Day-Date.

This Rolex Day-Date 18038 is in excellent condition, with a robust and sharp case and a lengthy President bracelet with hidden clasp and minimum stretch. The pitch black Onyx dial is absolutely flawless, with no markings or cracks. All three of the ‘closed’ solid golden hands are original to the watch and remain in pristine condition. The fluted bezel is still sharp, and is free from any damages. It is also worth noting that the sapphire crystal on this Day-Date is the original Rolex one, this means it has the correct 2.5x magnification for the cyclops, which optimizes the date of course. Also, take note of the smooth golden edges on the day and date windows; these are the kinds of details that provide depth to this pitch black dial that just keeps dragging you in. This Onyx Day-Date is an extremely sturdy watch, with a strong center-case, four equally shaped lugs, and a President bracelet that doesn’t stretch much.

In summary, this is an exceptionally rare and all original Rolex Onyx Day-Date 18038 with original T swiss T dial, which are quite difficult to find nowadays as most Onyx dials are modern ‘Swiss Made’ dials. Our watchmakers fully maintained this Onyx Day-Date, and the watch will be delivered with our 24-month warranty.
