A legendary timepiece with an unrivaled history, the Rolex Day-Date has earned its place as "The Ultimate Watch of Prestige" from its decades on the wrists of the world's most influential people. Released in 1956, the Day-Date quickly became synonymous with luxury, prestige, and exclusivity thanks to being the watch of choice for the world's athletes, visionaries, and world leaders alike. Only ever constructed of precious metals, the Day-Date's aesthetic is that of sheer elegance and grace. Aside from the beautiful array of dial options that have been available over the decades, the Day-Date's most iconic piece of design is its three-piece "Presidential" or "President" bracelet. Forming the bedrock of its construction, the Presidential bracelet has become synonymous with Rolex's flagship collection and their desire to create the very best and most iconic watches that the world has ever seen. With its timeless style and inescapable impact on horology, the Day-Date stands as a vivid reminder of just how successful Rolex has been in realizing that very mission.

The overall condition of the watch is excellent. The original 'Jubilee' diamond dial is in flawless condition. Case and bracelet appear to retain the original Rolex finish. Very mild surface abrasions are consistent with mindful and infrequent usage. Green caseback sticker is still present. The bracelet has little to no stretch, with 21 links in total. It is currently sized for a 6.75 inch wrist.
A Day-Date with a bit of added glamour, this 18238 is about as good as it gets. The jubilee dial features the 'ROLEX' name engraved in a stylized font repeatedly over the surface of the dial, along with diamond indexes. From afar, the dial simply appears to be a champagne color, however upon closer inspection additional details reveal the complexity of the intricate design.
