A distinct variation of the President Day-Date is the barked ref. 18078, which features a bark-textured bezel and matching center links. This particular finish creates dimension and complements the retro style of the vintage reference 18078 well. The Day-Date itself is closely associated with opulence and high-class, offering a finish that is always crafted from precious metals as well as a luxurious President bracelet with semi-circular links and a hidden Crownclasp. The dial also features both a date display as well as the day spelled out in full, features which are built into the innovative calibre 3055 perpetual movement that beats within the case. The gold used Rolex that is offered here today will appeal to mid-level collectors who seek a bold investment piece that will hold its value well.
*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.
