The reference 18 348 made by Rolex is one of very few equipped with the more precious and unusual diamond bezel instead of the classic fluted or a smooth one. The present lot is a specimen of this reference and has been produced in 18k yellow gold with a three-body solid tonneau case extremely well preserved and fresh with clear and deep hallmarks. Another interesting peculiarity is that both bracelet and case are compleatly oxidated, showing the original design like like when it left the Rolex company. Moreover, the dial is full charm with a champagne layout, brilliant and baguette diamonds applied indexes, English calendar disc and yellow-gold baton hands. The movement is the automatic caliber 3155 and it is compleated by its original Warranty of the famous official Swiss retailer Bucherer.
