Rolex 18K YG Midsize President circa 1986


A very sharp condition example Rolex 18K YG midsize Datejust ref 68278 circa 1986. Featuring a very popular and elusive size 31mm diameter Oyster case with fluted bezel and sapphire crystal. With original factory champagne dial and with gold baton hands. An exceptionally clean example with very tight original factory Rolex 18K YG hidden clasp Presidential bracelet.

Powered by calibre 2135 automatic movement with quick set date. Recently serviced and detailed and pressure tested. Guaranteed genuine and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation.

While this model is referred to by Rolex as the “midsize,” it is now an ideal and popular sporty size for women, and an alternative to the considerably smaller 27mm lady’s model. A tough model to find particularly in this fine condition. Only the man’s 36mm Presidential model has both the day and the date display. The midsize and lady’s Presidents show the date only, and are so designated when accompanied by the hidden clasp Presidential bracelet as shown here.

Your purchase includes our signature fine leather pouch, ideal for travel and storage, a $55.00 value.
