Sure, a Day-Date on a President bracelet is a timeless classic. But don’t underestimate the power of a Day-Date on a beautiful leather strap.The President bracelet is such an iconic design that it can even distract from the main course: the watch itself. At Baselworld 2013, Rolex introduced a series of Day-Dates in different precious metals with colorful dials and matching leather straps.This reference 118138 features the mesmerizing cognac dial variety with broad applied 18k yellow baton markers filled with Super Luminova and a white chapter ring with Roman 5-minute markings. The 36 mm Oyster case is executed in 18k yellow gold and features the iconic fluted bezel. The Oyster case on this Day-Date is different from other Day-Dates as it incorporates a well-placed fixed half-link between the lugs to cover the gap between the leather strap and the case. This beauty comes with its original cognac Rolex alligator leather strap and an 18k yellow gold Rolex deployant clasp.This elegant watch dates back to 2014 and is in excellent condition. It comes as a full set with the original box and papers.
Rolex Day-DateThe very essence of luxurious time-keeping, provided with a day and date function. It was launched in 1956 as a niche model and was only produced in precious metals (yellow-, white- and rose gold or platinum). Its retail price was way costlier than any other Rolex model. However, due to its popularity among a lot of prestigious people, for example presidents (hence, its nickname), it became Rolex’ flagship model. Over the years this model has enjoyed associations with a wide variety of people, from world leaders, athletes, celebrities and mafiosi (like Tony Soprano). Regardless of the differences, they all had one thing in common: being successful in their area of expertise. Therefore, to this day the Day-Date is still synonymous with luxury, prestige, style and success. With exception of the most modern models, the Day-Date comes in at 36mm.
