PRE-OWNED WATCH CONDITION EXAMINATION

This used Rolex watch is in very good condition with only few light surface scratches as well as some slight stretch to the bracelet consistent with age.

pre owned Rolex President 18038

By Paul Altieri

When the Rolex Presidential Day-Date came to market in 1956, it was simply known as the "Day-Date". It earns its original name from the date and day mechanism, which are located at the 3 and 12-hour markers. It wasn't until a model was spotted on the wrist of former President Lyndon B. Johnson that the Day-Date became known as the "President's Watch" and the bracelet that often accompanies it was nicknamed the "President bracelet". Always crafted from precious metal and offering bold yet sophisticated style, it comes as no surprise that the Day-Date carries with it the reputation as the timepiece of many American Presidents. The ref. 18038 is an older preowned Rolex that brings many vintage characteristics to the table while maintaining a powerful aesthetic, such as faded Tritium luminous material, 18 karat yellow gold, and a calibre 3055 perpetual movement with a single Quickset function.

    Excellent condition!

    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

    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 ! ***
