Rolex Day Date President 18K YG ref 18038 circa 1986 Custom Lapis Dial

SOLD

A fine example Rolex ref# 18038 18K YG Day Date President, circa 1986 with custom Lapis dial. Featuring an excellent condition 36mm 18k yellow gold case, with thick lugs and sapphire crystal and fluted bezel, with a stunning custom lapis lazuli dial. (see additional details about malachite dials below)

Powered by calibre 3055 “single” quick set movement with day of the week and quick set date. With 18k yellow gold hidden clasp Presidential bracelet. This beautiful watch was recently fully serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation. We don’t expect this one to be around for very long!

NOTE: Lapis is a blue natural stone with bands of subtle color change. Rolex used stone dials on some Day Date, and Datejust models during this era which are highly sought after. Original Rolex factory lapis dial models of this era have reportedly brought $25,000-$30,000 attesting to their rarity and value. The lapis stone dial in this model is a particularly rich and appealing stone with dark blue background and subtle lighter blue flecks. We are often asked to source original stone dial models, which are very elusive, so we are proud to be able to offer this next best thing!
