Rolex Day-Date 18238 'Wood Dial'

  • Free worldwide delivery

Bur, burr or burl wood is outgrowth on a tree often in the form of a knot. These knots are caused by growth in a deformed manner, which is in turn caused by disrupted hormones. It appears ugly on the outside but magnificent on the inside: instead of perfect growth rings, the nerfs twist, twirl, spiral and swirl each in their own way creating a highly-unique pattern of wood grain. Thanks to its distinctive look, bur wood is often used for decoration and also for Rolex wood dials.The Day-Date we can offer you dates back to 1990, has reference 18238 meaning it has a double-quickset function (caliber 3155) and an 18k yellow-gold fluted bezel. The case, which measures 36 mm, and the President bracelet, with concealed clasp, are from 18k yellow gold too and are both in mint condition. The watch has been kept in good condition. This specific wood dial has the typical look and it provides the watch with a very luxurious appearance. The day disc is English and we can imagine how stylish the new owner probably will be when he matches the wood of this Presidential Rolex dial with the wood of the interior of his Rolls-Royce. 


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.
