Introduction

Rolex Day-Date 18238 on a President bracelet with a rare stone dial. This fossil face watch goes by the nickname "Jurassic park". As we know, the stone dials are very uncommon but this one in particular is super rare. The scarcity of this fossil dial Day-Date is caused by the production proces which was extremely hard. Carve a thin slice of fossil, then add 10 diamond settings, the gold frames for the apertures and the coronet, add the printing and finish to it, all without cracking the surface. Happy to offer one of the few that survived and it is kept in immaculate condition. This unique dial features the "T Swiss made T" signing as it refers to the tritium set hand-sets. Furthermore the watch was recently been serviced by Rolex and comes with the warranty card.

Description

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?
