The Day-date 18 038 offered here impresses for its conditions which have remained unchanged over time: the dial shows its mint conditions, with a rare stripes pattern, baton numerals and hands and centered seconds. The classic shapes of the case realized in yellow gold have withstood the passage of time in a remarkable manner and are kept in excellent condition: this is exemplified by the presence on the back of the original Rolex sticker with the typical green color still vivid and crisp. The President bracelet, like new, introduced with this name in 1966 specific for this model complete the watch in all its beauty. To further embellish this watch is the fact that was sold at the auction Mondani Collection of Rolex Wristwatches, Antiquorum, Geneva 1 April 2006.
