ROLEX DAY-DATE 18039
The case and bracelet on this white gold Day-Date still look very fresh with strong lugs and a very well conditioned, white gold president bracelet with concealed clasp. The silver diamond dial with sunburst finish is absolutely stunning! The dial’s details, such as the printing, the diamond setting and the font on the day and date discs, are all of very high quality. Speaking of details; we are dealing with a so-called ‘No Lume’ watch here, called this way for the lack of any luminescent material (tritium) inside the hands or at the end of the diamond hour-markers, in other words, you won’t be able to tell the time when it’s pitch black dark, but who needs that stuff anyway when you’ve got diamonds! Besides beautiful, this ‘No Lume’ dial and hands combination is a pretty rare find on a Day-Date watch.
The SWISS MADE signed diamond dial is from a slightly later period (ca. mid 1980’s) This 18039 is fully serviced according to the Rolex specs and received a soft polish to bring back that gorgeous Day-Date shine. The watch will be sold with a 12 month warranty.
