Rolex Day-Date President 18038

By Paul Altieri

Every watch collection needs at least one gold Rolex, and there is no better option on the secondary market than the discontinued Rolex Presidential Day-Date ref. 18038. The Day-Date is, perhaps, the most iconic gold luxury watch in existence. It came to market in the 1950s and continues production today. The beloved dress watch has since appeared on the wrists of some of the world's most influential dignitaries and public figures, earning it the nickname "President." Ref. 18038 is an older-model Rolex distinguished by a satin and polished yellow gold finish, three-link President bracelet, fluted bezel, and sharp black dial. It boasts a day and date mechanism on the dial, water resistance up to 100 meters, and self-winding technology.

    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.
