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 182xx series, introduced in 1988, is the fifth generation of Day-Dates. This ref. 18238 dates back to 1990 and features the updated caliber 3155 automatic movement with the convenient double-quickset function to separately adjust the day and date discs.The 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 star of the show, of course, is the dial. The classic champagne dial is executed with brilliant factory-set diamond markers, with alternating baguettes on 6 and 9 o’clock positions.

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.
