Rolex's ultimate status watch, Day-Date.

Introduced in 1956, the Day-Date was the world's first waterproof self-winding chronometer wristwatch with a date and full-spell day of the week on the dial.

The

case is made in 18K gold or platinum only. With the only day of the week display and limited materials, it has established itself as the finest watch in Rolex.

Day-Date is sometimes called "President Watch".

Its origin began with being presented to the 34th President of the United States, Dwight Eisenhower, and its name was established by the patronage of successive presidents.

Like the

case, the gold bracelet is known as the "President's Breath" and has a strong image of being a "first-class watch worn by successful and leaders."

This Ref.18238 is a 5th generation day-date model produced from the latter half of the 1988s to around 2000.

Compared to the previous generation Ref.18038, the thickness of the case has been reduced, and the appearance has changed to a smarter one. The case material is 18K yellow gold.

The main feature of this watch is its dial. It's a very luxurious combination of a matte black dial and an index with diamonds, but it doesn't stand out when you actually put it on.

Diamonds have 8 round cuts and 2 baguette cuts at 6 o'clock and 9 o'clock, which is also different from the normal index with diamonds. The

bracelet is the same 18K yellow gold president bracelet as the case. It's heavy and I think this bracelet stands out most, so changing to leather is one thing.

The bracelet can handle up to 18.5 cm around the arm. The movement equipped with

is a self-winding Cal.3155. By adopting the twin bridge method, stability and maintainability have been further improved.

Also, until the previous model, it was a specification that only the date was quick changed, but from this model both the date and the day of the week can be changed quickly, which is also very excellent in terms of practicality.

You can change the date by turning clockwise (clockwise) and the day of the week by turning counterclockwise (counterclockwise) with the crown pulled one step.

Warranty card and tag are attached. The year of sale is written as 1994.

Overhauled by Airy's. The case and bracelet have been finished with new products.

The sapphire glass windshield is replaced at the time of overhaul.

One year warranty after purchase.
