Rolex Day Date President 18K YG ref 18138 circa 1986


An absolutely stunning Rolex ref# 18138 18K YG Day Date President with factory chased diamond and ruby set dial, diamond set bezel, and diamond set lugs circa 1986. An extraordinary example from the Rolex Crown Collection of the era. Featuring a 36mm 18k yellow gold case, with sapphire crystal and diamond set bezel. The watch is in absolutely mint condition, with superb elegance and fine detail, and executed to the highest standards of Haute Couture.

The solid gold dial has been meticulously chased in a fine wave pattern, and  is bordered by a subtle band of fine diamonds offset with ruby hour indexes. The bezel is decorated with 40 fine diamonds and the lugs each with 4 diamonds, of a proportion that is sophisticated and stunning, and neither gaudy or what we usually associate with bling! The bezel is further set off by the ROLEX name engraved at the 6 o’clock position on the bezel, while the dial bears plaques for the ROLEX name as well as for the DAY-DATE model.

This gorgeous timepiece is powered by calibre 3055 “single” quick set movement with day of the week and quick set date. The watch is in superb cosmetic condition including the 18k yellow gold hidden clasp Presidential bracelet which shows nearly no stretch.

While we do not have the original Rolex warrantee papers for this treasure, we guarantee that the watch is entirely factory and original. The watch is offered with our guarantee of authenticity and with our 1 year warrantee of accurate time keeping and operation. A Rolex Presidential box will be included with this purchase.

We cannot say enough about how beautiful this watch is to behold. We compare it to the finest work of Buccelatti jewelry known for its finely detailed and exquisitely executed workmanship. We urge you to behold this watch in person to appreciate how truly stunning it is!

NOTE: This watch is consigned to us by a collector and will be serviced by us upon a commitment for purchase.

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.
