Normally we’d call a white gold Day-Date stealth wealth. But, there’s little stealth about this diamond-set baby. So, perhaps something along the lines of ‘icy and pricey’?

The 18049 is a special sub-reference of the 18xxx series Day-Dates that features a beautiful factory diamond-set bezel to go with the classic 36 mm Oyster case executed in 18K white gold. The classic silvered dial also features, alternating between brilliant-cut markers and baguette-cut quarters. The package is completed by the matching 18K white gold President bracelet with the iconic concealed clasp.

This ref. 18049 dates back to 1985 and is powered by the improved caliber 3055 with the handy single quickset function. The watch is in great condition with a thick case and tight bracelet.

Introduction

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, the retail price was way costlier than previous models. However, due to its popularity among a lot of prestigious people (for example a lot of Presidents, hence its nickname/ bracelet name), it became Rolex’ flagship model. Over the years this model enjoyed associations with various ‘kinds of people’, from celebrities to Mafiosi (like Tony Soprano). They had all one thing in common: being successful in their area of expertise. To this day the Day-date is still synonymous with prestige and style. With exception of the most modern models the Day-Date comes in at 36mm. Do you earn this watch?
