This very beautiful 15 018 not only is an automatic watch with a waterproof case but also this reference is important by the implementation of the quick-set feature, meaning you can adjust the date once the crown is in position 2. The jewel count had been upped to 27 from 26 due to the use of the new caliber 3035. The size of the case and lug width all stay the same of the previous model. The reference 15 018 is not so common to find since its years of production spans from 1981 to 1986, for Rolex’s standards not so many years. The crisp yellow-gold case together with the thunderbird bezel are two features that make this watch even more desirable also considering its really great conditions. The case back still presents the original green Rolex sticker and is a symptom of quality and great conservation. Completing everything is the very charming blue dial with an electric color, the gold applied baton numerals, luminous accents and hands.
