Pre-Owned Watch Condition Examination

Rolex Day-Date President 18078

By Paul Altieri

The barked Rolex Presidential Day-Date has a cult following among many avid vintage watch collectors. What makes this wristwatch so special is the unique texture on the bezel, also known as a "Barked" treatment. This ref. 18078 is also highly coveted because it belongs to the iconic Day-Date series, featuring dual apertures on the dial, a lustrous 18k yellow gold finish, and a supple Rolex Presidential bracelet. It will hold its value well alongside the price of gold and boasts a waterproof case and a protective crystal over the dial. If you buy a gold Rolex, you might as well choose one with charming character and immense wrist presence.

Authentic and Excellent quality watch

Buying the Rolex watch was a dream come true for my husband. With the excellent quality of their watches, we can have a high resale value in the future. Bob's watches is the best place to go for pre owned Rolex watches. You can ask for Sarah who is one of their super friendly and accommodating staff.


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.
