Rolex Day-Date 18038
This Rolex Day-Date 18038 has a nice strong case, all lugs are sharp and well shaped, and you can tell by the way the gold around the winding crown position is maintained that she hasn’t seen much polishing. The President bracelet, complete with its hidden clasp is in excellent condition, with less stretch than one would anticipate from a yellow gold Day-Date of this vintage age. Even though the beautiful vintage gold with its warm radiance on the case and bracelet is eye-catching, the factory diamond dial with 8 round cut diamonds and 2 baquette cut diamonds, are the true eye-catchers of this watch, they will have you gazing at your dial without even looking at the time..
During photography, we used two different lighting conditions to show you the difference in the color of the vintage 18k yellow gold. As you can see in natural lighting (the closest to what you’re seeing with your own eyes), this Day-Date has a gorgeous and warmer pinkish tone when compared to the other photos where the watch is more yellow (the latter were taken using a photography cone) To be clear, this beauty shows a more pinkish warm gold in person, and we absolutely adore it! The all-over condition of this vintage Rolex Day-Date is very good with all gold hallmarks in the back of the case clearly visible to the naked eye. In short, this vintage Day-Date is an excellent and very well preserved timepiece.
As always, our watchmakers completely serviced this Rolex Day-Date 18038 and its entire movement, the watch will be sold with our extensive 24-month warranty.
