Rolex Day-Date 36 ref. 18238 - Champagne Dial President bracelet
For sale at Debonar Watches: pre-owned Rolex Day-Date ref. 18238, in full yellow gold.
Mainly in the US, the Day-Date model is often referred to as the “Rolex President”. Officially, “President” refers to the type of bracelet you see in our pictures, though the watch was also available on an Oyster bracelet.
The “President” nickname also refers to the US Presidents who wore this watch. In Europe it’s more common to refer to it as Rolex Day-Date.
The ref. 18238 is forged from 18k yellow gold from head to toe, right down to the clasp. With the cushion-shape case and integrated end links on the bracelet, the watch gives the impression of wearing one continuous golden band. Finishing the design is a traditional fluted bezel, one of the oldest styles Rolex uses and perfect for the Day-Date, with its tooth-like facets catching the light on what is already a very noticeable timepiece.
In all, this is a model for those comfortable with standing out in a crowd and who appreciate the heritage of the brand.
Its story: The Rolex Day-Date debuted in 1956, and to this day, not much about the watch has changed. That’s the power of such an icon, but perhaps it’s also the reason why it is such an iconic watch after all.
1988 saw the introduction of the ref. 182XX family of the Day-Date, taking over from that relatively short lived ref. 180XX (and for the Datejust it was the ref. 162XX replacing the ref. 160XX). Externally, there was very little to tell one from the other and, in truth, their calibers shared far more similarities than differences too.
But by this point in its aesthetic development, the President was the President, its character and contours set in stone and its place as Rolex’s flagship unassailable. And the most classic interpretation of the Day-Date was the ref. 18238, a bold, brazen watch which was unmistakable in any company.
