Rolex President 118238

By Paul Altieri

The Rolex 118238 is an evolution of the iconic Day-Date President's Watch ref. 18238. It runs on the same cal. 3155 Perpetual movement with a Double Quickset function, but now includes an upgraded case and bracelet. The case is now equipped with a Twinlock waterproof screw-down crown, which screws into the Monobloc middle case to promise water-resistance up to 330 feet. The bracelet includes the Day-Date's signature semi-circular links and concealed Crownclasp. This used Rolex is presented in the brand's proprietary 18kt yellow gold. It is of the highest quality possible and will maintain a stunning luster for years of wear. It will also hold its value well alongside the price of gold, making this edition of the Day-Date a very tempting choice for your next luxury watch investment.

    Rolex purchase

    Paid for my watch at noon. Watch delivered 3,000 away at 1PM the next day. As advertised, great condition.

    My new day date

    I've owned my yellow gold day date with the president bracelet briefly. Soon as I unboxed my watch. Took off my GMT that I also bought from Bob's. This day date fits my wrist better that the GMT. I've been wearing a GMT since 1967. The 36mm is not a heavy watch. The bracelet seems to follow my wrist. I'm only 5 ' 5" so the 36 fits perfect. For a person that is taller bigger person the 41mm may work better. I have also bought a date just SS in 41mm and a two tone day just 41. These watches look fine on a small wrist. However, a 41mm all gold may be to much. Hay everybody look at me. After three days on my wrist, it still hasn't sunk in that I finally own a pretty darn good watch. The watch has lost 1 second in the three days.

    My new day date

    My new 36 mm day date, yellow gold. Soon as I unboxed my watch. as I put it on the president bracelet melted/molded around my wrist. When I removed my GMT and put on the DD, it took all of five seconds to realize it fits & feels more comfortable then the GMT. I find no difference in weight between the GMT & the day date. Please, don't take my word, try a day date on and see for yourself.

    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!
