The Day-date 18 138 offered here impresses for its conditions which have remained unchanged over time: the dial shows its mint conditions, full charm green degraded layout, diamonds applied indexes, English calendar disc and yellow-gold baton 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 amplified by the presence on the lugs of the original Rolex diamond set that matches perfectly the diamond-set bezel with the brand imprinted at six o’clock. The President bracelet, like new, introduced with this name in 1966 specific for this model complete the watch in all its beauty. The movement is the automatic caliber 3155.
