Also known as the "President's Watch", the Day-Date has appeared on many former US Presidents' wrists since coming to market in the 1950s. Most notably was Lyndon B. Johnson and Ronald Reagan. It's even rumored that Marilyn Monroe gifted a gold Rolex Day-Date to JFK during their sordid affair, of which it is unknown if he ever wore it. Today, the ref. 18238 maintains the classic aesthetic that the Day-Date line is known for, offering a handsome satin and high-polish yellow gold finish, a traditional 36mm Oyster case topped with a fluted bezel, and a Rolex Presidential bracelet, which boasts semi-circular links and a clever hidden Crownclasp. The date is displayed at the 3-hour marker and the day is spelled out in full at the 12-hour marker, giving this used Rolex its signature look. When it comes to gold watches, there is no better choice than the iconic and powerful Day-Date.

This is the first time I buy from Bobs' watches. Service is excellent. I wired payment in the morning and the watch was shipped in the afternoon. Will buy from Bobs's watches again.
Everything was in excellent condition. I’m very happy with the overall watch. Pictures were exactly how the watch looks
