Rolex Day Date Ref. 18038
CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY & APPRAISAL
1 YEAR MECHANICAL WARRANTY
FROM THE CURATOR
Blue dials are some of the most valued in the Rolex world. Whether that’s a denim blue dial on a vintage Air King, or a sunburst blue on a 1601, they’re among the most desired there are. But to see a deep, rich blue dial like this one, especially with Roman numerals, on a Day Date of all things, is next level. The dial is absolutely mesmerizing, but this is enhanced even more so by the 18k yellow gold case and bezel, as well as its original, solid gold Presidential bracelet. Its quickset day and date functions also make it highly practical if you have a larger collection, or only intend to wear it on special occasions and will have to reset both every time you go to wear it. Dating back to 1982, this reference 18038 Day Date is one for the record books here at T&H, and one of the most impressive we’ve offered yet.
And of course, it comes complete with a certificate of authenticity and appraisal and is shipped carefully and fully insured via UPS expedited service.
ABOUT THE BRAND
Rolex is arguably the most famous brand in the world when it comes to luxury timepieces. Their brand equity is through the roof, and you’d be hard pressed to find another luxury watchmaker who can make watch geeks and non-geeks alike incredibly stoked. Their quality is second to none, and it makes sense that until this day, when someone thinks about James Bond, Magnum P.I. or Glengarry Glen Ross, they think of Rolex.
