The Glamorous Day Date - A very nice Rolex Day Date 18038 from 1986 with a glamorous Diamond String dial with Rubies. The Diamonds are set directly on the dial without any frames pronouncing the string very nicely. The Rubies are positioned more towards the center of the dial and are set with golden settings. Overall in very nice condition, this watch is very attractive and would do well on a man's or even a lady's wrist.

Arguably one of the most iconic watches ever made, the Day-Date aka the Rolex President was introduced in 1956 and was the first to feature both the day and date in dedicated windows on the dial.
The Day-Date is the top model in the Rolex line-up and comes in an array of configurations with rare and special dials and case decorations. It has only ever been made in precious metals with Automatic movements and historically with an elegant diameter of 36mm - the perfect size for an iconic dress watch.
