The reference 18308 made by Rolex 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 the president bracelet with internal bark finishing that matches the diamond bark bezel. Moreover, the dial is full of charm with a particular layout: Champagne on the background, circular brilliant diamond-set and baguette ruby applied indexes for the hours, English calendar disc and yellow-gold baton hands. The movement is the automatic caliber 3155.
