The first Day-Date came to market in the 1950's, boasting an innovative movement that offered not only the iconic date aperture, but the day spelled out in full as well. The ref. 18078 is an older preowned Rolex, coming to market in the late 1970's, and featuring a striking barked bezel and bracelet. This textured finish creates immense dimension and character, offering a truly unique statement piece. A black dial contrasts nicely against the 18 karat yellow gold finish and boasts diamond hour markers and yellow gold hour, minute, and seconds hands. Similar to other Day-Date models, the case is worn on a supple President bracelet secured by a hidden Crownclasp.
*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.
