The Rolex Presidential Day-Date is powered by a calibre 3055 Perpetual movement that features a Single Quickset function, automatic winding, and a 42-hour power reserve. The calibre 3055 beats at a rate of 28,800 bph and boasts the distinction of a Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified. This movement will continue to produce incredibly reliable readings for many more years to come.
This ref. 18038 is a striking, all-gold example of the iconic Day-Date President's Watch that also boasts a traditional 36mm case diameter, a semi-circular link bracelet closed by a hidden Crownclasp, and a dial topped with the line's namesake day and date windows. The watch of choice among some of the world's elite, the Day-Date is the watch to wear if you wish to make a powerful statement.
*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.
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
great condition as noted on website very happy
