pre-owned Rolex President 18038

By Paul Altieri

Also known as the President's Watch, the Rolex Day-Date has graced the wrists of some of the world's most influential men and women, including former US Presidents Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, and Bill Clinton. The Day-Date is always presented in precious metal and is guaranteed to make a powerful impression on all who gaze upon it. The ref. 18038 that you see here today is an older-model yellow gold Day-Date that was produced sometime in the mid-1980s. Its feature set includes a traditional 36mm waterproof Oyster case on a Presidential bracelet with semi-circular links and a hidden Crownclasp. A matching champagne dial is topped with yellow gold hour markers and hands and creamy Tritium plots, creating a very desirable all-gold aesthetic.

    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 ! ***

    The purchasing process was quick and easy once I finally made my selection. Bob’s customer service was excellent. All my questions and concerns were addressed to my satisfaction. But most important of all, my husband loves his new watch!
