PRE-OWNED WATCH CONDITION EXAMINATION

This Rolex watch is in overall excellent condition with light surface wear to the bracelet and case. Small ding on 6 o'clock end link. Tinny micro nicks on outer rim of crystal not visible to the naked eye. Dial has a yellow hue due to natural exposure and age, with light patina forming on outer edge, as seen in pictures.

ROLEX PRESIDENT DAY-DATE 18078

By Paul Altieri

This edition of the famed Rolex Presidential Day-Date is bursting with history and character. While most editions of the Day-Date feature either a smooth or a fluted bezel, this reference 18078 stands out with a barked texture bezel and matching center links on the bracelet. This technique is no longer available to the Day-Date collection, making this edition of the President's watch a true collector's item. Dazzling brilliant and baguette-cut diamonds circle the dial. Additionally, this reference 18078 features a polished and satin yellow gold finish. It boasts immense investment potential while offering the wearer the exclusivity and bold style often sought-after by used Rolex collectors.

    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.

    Flabbergasted!

    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.

    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.
