We're not going to bore you with the “Think of the watch that a president would wear…” story. We want you to think about Tony Soprano's watch. A watch that conveys status. A watch that commands respect. A watch that oozes luxury. And, granted, was associated with a few fictional murders.
The Rolex Day-Date is a true pioneer: the first automatic, waterproof, chronometer wristwatch that indicated both the date and day of the week. The 1182xx series, introduced in 2000, is the sixth generation of Day-Dates.
This ref. 11238 dates back to 2003 and comes in the classic Day-Date packaging: a 36 mm 18K yellow-gold case, an 18K yellow gold fluted bezel, and the iconic 18K yellow gold President bracelet. The watch features a classic champagne dial with applied 18K yellow-gold baton markers and a printed closed minute track with Roman numerals at the 5-minute intervals.
This beauty is in excellent condition and comes as a full set with the original box and papers.
Rolex Day-DateIn 1956, Rolex introduced one the most iconic watches ever made: the Day-Date. The Day-Date was the first waterproof self-winding chronometer certified wristwatch with a day and date function. And to top it off, it was only available in gold or platinum! Rolex also designed a new three-link bracelet, known as the ‘President,’ to pair with this special watch. With the exception of the modern ‘Day-Date II’, the Day-Date comes exclusively in a 36 mm case.
