Rolex 18K YG ref 18038 Day Date circa 1985


Rolex 18K YG Day Date ref 18038 serial # 8.8 million, circa 1985 in nearly mint condition. Featuring an incredibly sharp 36mm diameter case with fluted bezel, sapphire crystal, and classic original champagne gold dial. With original Rolex 18K YG hidden clasp bracelet also in excellent condition. Powered by calibre 3055 self winding movement with sweep seconds and quick set date.

Offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation. Also accompanied by a service card showing a full service by Rolex in 2017.

At one time the Presidential model thrived only in the realm of the corporate executive, see frequent shots of a Presidential Rolex on the wrist of the George Bush character in the political film “Vice,”. The Day Date President has now evolved into fashion regular on the wrists of men and women alike. While we often favor unusual and distinctive dials, the original soft gold sheen of the champagne dial seems to be the favorite of our clients.

Your watch purchase will arrive in our fine glazed leather WBAW? watch pouch. Great for travel or storage.

Note: photo depicts a similar condition example from our recent inventory. Actual watch is for sale in our shop.

Vintage Rolex & Pre-Owned Rolex Watches

There is no watch brand more associated with quality, prestige, luxury, success, and social status than Rolex. Founded in the UK in 1908 and soon relocated to Switzerland, Rolex is credited with countless technical advances in time keeping accuracy, the introduction in 1928 of the water and dust resistant “Oyster” case, and in 1933, the perfection of the self winding “Perpetual” movement. With sponsorship of sporting events as wide reaching as the America’s cup, to the Daytona 500, golf and tennis tournaments, and expeditions to the far reaches of the world, Rolex has always promoted it’s brand as an icon of success, achievement, and conquest. With popular “tool” watches such as the diver’s Submariner or Seadweller, the Aviator’s dual time zone GMT, the spelunker’s 24 hour Explorer, or the auto racer’s Daytona, Rolex has created loyal followings for the sports minded man. And the dressy Datejust and Presidential models, once the CEO’s trademark timepiece, are now much sought after by both men and woman as a luxury fashion statement. Whether vintage Rolex or more contemporary, your choice of a Rolex will always be a good choice.

All of our pre-owned Vintage Rolex watches are fully restored and guaranteed genuine to give you excellent service and piece of mind.
