  • Free worldwide delivery

A factory-set diamond case together with a diamond and ruby dial? It takes some major cojones to pull off this Day-Date. As you know, Ramon is our resident Day-Date wearer. After measuring his balls, we concluded he wasn’t ready for this one either. So, you think you are?This beauty comes with its own special reference number (18338), with the first ‘3’ indicating that the case is adorned by brilliant cut diamonds in various sizes on the lugs. The watch comes with a wonderful champagne-colored ruby string dial. The string dial is made up of a string of small brilliant-cut diamonds next to the chapter ring and larger brilliant cut ruby hour markers. As the 18338 is a special of the 182XX-series Day-Dates, it houses the caliber 3155 automatic movement with a double-quickset function. This allows you to independently adjust the day, date, and time. The watch is in amazing condition and is delivered on an exceptionally tight President bracelet with the classic hidden Rolex clasp.


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.
