This pre-owned Rolex watch is on overall excellent pre-owned condition with a few small chips on the outer edge of the crystal near 3 o'clock and very slight stretch to the bracelet consistent with age.

The Rolex bark finish President Day-Date ref. 18078 is a stunning example of the line that features a textured treatment on the bezel and center links of the bracelet. This finish gives the Day-Date immense character and dimension, creating a statement piece that you will be proud to wear on your wrist. The ref. 18078 is an older-model Day-Date that also includes a traditional 36mm case, a semi-circular link bracelet closed by a concealed Crownclasp, and a calibre 3055 self-winding movement with a Single Quickset function. The time is displayed on a matching champagne dial via yellow gold markers and hands and creamy Tritium luminous plots. This Day-Date is in excellent condition with only some minor signs of wear on the crystal, making it an excellent addition to any watch box.
*All Pre-Owned Rolex watches are guaranteed to be 100% genuine and certified authentic. All watches are shipped to fit the average size wrist (7 1/4" - 7 1/2" for men and 6 1/4" - 6 1/2" for women). Additional links can be purchased if needed.
This watch was advertised as circa 1983 in excellent condition. I could not find one flaw on it. It is as close to mint as any watch I have seen at a dealer's store. The bark finish is much more stunning in person than it is in photographs. I am beyond pleased that I made the choice for the bark finish. Anyone else deciding on bark finish, do yourself a favor and see one in person. They are fabulous!
Like most things in life living and working in Sierra Leone also has its drawbacks. The most prevalent is access. Bob'so watches is the bridge for millions like me to obtain our favourite watches even in far reaching spots like SL. Thank you. We got our watches yesterday and we love them. It's my first Rolex and my husband's second Omega. Our watches are exactly as was displayed on the website plus more with all the papers.
