Rolex Day-Date President 118238 36mm Black Dial - Gold Stick Markers 18 Karat Yellow Gold Automatic Movement with Original Box c.2000
The 1986 Rolex Day-Date President is the crown jewel of the Rolex catalog. Debuting in 1956, the Day-Date is the first wristwatch to spell out all seven days of the week, a feat attributed to the extra-wide aperture at 12 o’clock on the dial.
With a history as captivating as its design, the Day-Date earned its moniker as the “President” watch, gracing the wrists of luminaries like Presidents Lyndon B. Johnson, Gerald Ford, and Bill Clinton. The rumored gifting of a Day-Date by Marilyn Monroe to John F. Kennedy in 1962 only adds a dash of allure to its storied legacy.
Released around the turn of the millennium, this Rolex Day-Date #118238 epitomizes quality craftsmanship, and a touch of modern allure. The black dial serves as a sleek canvas for the gold tick markers, balancing between simplicity and sophistication. The 18k President bracelet, featuring semi-circular three-piece links and a concealed Crown and clasp is a valued hallmark. Rolex, founded by the visionary Hans Wilsdorf in 1905, harbored a dream beyond the ordinary—imagining a wristwatch that not only exuded elegance but also upheld unparalleled reliability. A watch that, quite literally, stands the test of time.
