The 18238 features a brushed yellow gold case, which is accented by a fixed fluted gold bezel. The Day-Date is mounted on its original gold President bracelet, which is secured by a hidden Crownclasp. The bracelet is stamped with a “M8” clasp code, which correlates to an August 1988 production date, meaning that the bracelet is original to the watch. The bracelet contains 5 screw links and will comfortably fit a 7.15 inch wrist. The President bracelet contains virtually no stretch, would rate it 90% plus. Rolex features a gorgeous blue sunburst dial with applied polished gold stick hour markers, polished gold hands, a magnified date window aperture at 3 o’clock, and a day window aperture at 12 o’clock. The dial has aged gorgeously and acquired an exquisite purplish blue hue. The lume plots have also stood the test of time well, and acquired a light cream colored patina with the hands acquiring a matching patina. A unique aspect about the 18238 is that it was produced in 1988, which means that it was produced during the first year of production. As a result, the watch has a transitional “open 6” date wheel, which is rarely seen on reference 18238 Day-Dates.

The movement used in the 18238 is the COSC certified Rolex Calibre 3155, which features approximately 48 hours of power reserve. The 3155 movement passed an accuracy test prior to listing, and is keeping excellent time. In addition, the watch also passed a pressure test before being listed.

The Day-Date has stood the test of time well, and was seldomly worn by its original owner. The case is thick with even and crisp lugs, while the bezel flutes are extremely sharp. In addition, the bracelet contains little to no stretch, while the cornett on the clasp is thick and crisp. Overall the Day-Date is a perfect example of a 18238, and quite rare when one takes into account the open 6 date wheel, and complete accessories set. This was likely one of the first 18238 Day-Dates ever produced by Rolex and would make an excellent addition to any watch collection.
