This is the original ‘bust down Rolex’. All factory-set everything.A yellow gold Day-Date is plenty special by itself, but sometimes we just want to go that extra mile. The ultra-rare ‘Golden Embroidery’ Day-Date offers one the most intricately designed dial options ever made by Rolex. Crafted from 18k yellow-gold, the open-worked and engraved dial features an elaborate floral motif and luxurious brilliant-cut diamond setting. Due to the alternating cut-outs, facets, and diamond, the dial offers a mesmerising juxtaposition between light and shadow. A few variants of this embroidery dial exist with this one featuring the finest engraved motif, which is shown on the left side of the comparison picture.If that exquisite dial weren’t enough, this beauty comes with even more diamonds for your pleasure. In fact, the watch carries a special reference number (18338), with the first ‘3’ indicating that the 18k yellow-gold case is adorned by brilliant-cut diamonds in various sizes on the lugs. The diamond theme is carried through on the ultra-rare President bracelet with factory set diamond centre links.This 18338 dates back to 1992 and is powered by the caliber 3155 self-winding movement with a double-quickset function, allowing for the independent adjustment of the day and date discs. The watch is in excellent condition, with a super sharp case and exceptionally tight President bracelet.

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.
