PRE-OWNED WATCH CONDITION EXAMINATION

pre-owned Rolex Day-Date President 18038

By Paul Altieri

The Rolex Presidential Day-Date runs on a calibre 3055 movement, which features self-winding, automatically changing date and day mechanisms, and a Single Quickset function. The Single Quickset was a particularly important addition to the Day-Date as it gave the wearer the ability to adjust the date mechanism with a simple twist of the crown. The President's Watch is always presented in precious metal and often features a fluted bezel and a semi-circular link bracelet closed by a hidden Crownclasp. The ref. 18038 that you see here today is an earlier-model Day-Date that features a brushed and satin 18 karat yellow gold finish, a black dial topped with yellow gold indices and hands, and creamy Tritium luminous plots.

    Linen Dial Rolex Day/Date

    I ordered this product late on a Thursday evening and it was delivered before noon on Saturday morning. The watch was in better condition than I anticipated and all parts were period correct. The crystal was a replacement crystal and hands were also replaced somewhere along the way as they were the only parts that had lume. the tritium on the hour indices has long since expired so for the hands to shine brightly, they were likely replaced - I'm good with this as the watch is much more practical as a result. If the watch wasn't clearly from the mid 80s based on a different case design (brushed lug hoods versus current day polished), I would think this was a relatively recent production piece. The bracelet has almost no sag and the clasp buckles tightly. Very happy with this purchase and experience

    I have made several purchases and one sales through Bob’s. The order process, payment, processing, and most importantly delivery have all been absolutely flawless. Very quick and efficient. I never look anywhere else for used Rolex.

    Superb site and transaction, phenominal delivery time. Some slight confusion concerning the special discount at the time. I didn't receive it. No big deal I would not hesitate to purchase another rolex from Bob's ! ***
