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 respects. 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 18xxx series, introduced in 1978, is the fourth generation of Day-Dates. This ref. 18038 dates back to 1979 and houses Rolex’ caliber 3055 self-winding movement with a single-quickset function, allowing for the independent adjustment of the date discThe 36 mm case is executed in 18k yellow-gold and is in excellent condition. The iconic President bracelet with hidden folding clasp is in great condition as well, featuring little stretch. The watch comes with the classic champagne gold dial and an English day disc.

Introduction

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 exception of the most modern executions, the Day-Date comes exclusively in a 36mm case.
