-Description

The Day-Date is the ultimate status watch from Rolex.

Introduced in 1956, the Day-Date was the world's first water-resistant, self-winding chronometer wristwatch with the date and full spelling of the day on the dial.

The case was manufactured exclusively in 18K gold or platinum.

The case is manufactured exclusively in 18K gold or platinum.

It is the only Rolex watch with a day-of-week display, and by limiting the materials used, it had established itself as a top-of-the-line watch.

The Day-Date is also sometimes referred to as the "President's Watch.

The name was first given to the 34th President of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and it has since become a favorite of presidents.

The bracelet, made of gold like the case, is known as the "President bracelet" and has become a watch with a strong image of "a prestigious watch worn by successful men and leaders."

The Ref. 18238 shown here is the 5th generation Day-Date model and was produced from the late 1988s to around 2000.

Compared to the previous generation Ref.18038, the thickness of the case has been reduced and the watch has changed to a sleeker appearance.

The case material is 18k yellow gold. The size is 36mm.

The dial is a slightly ivory-colored silver sunray finished dial.

It has simple bar indexes but features small Roman numerals printed on the outer minute circle.

The hands have the same bar hands as the indexes.

The dial is marked "SWISS MADE" and the luminous paint on both hands and dial are luminova, so the dial was replaced at Rolex Service Center in later years.

The movement is a self-winding Cal.3155.

The adoption of the twin bridge system has further improved stability and maintainability.

The previous model had quick-change date only, but from this model, both date and day of the week can be changed quickly.

This is a very practical and excellent feature.

Most 5-digit reference day-date watches come with a bracelet and are rarely sold as a watch only.

Because of this, the price range is more affordable, and we recommend this watch to those who are considering wearing it with a leather strap.
