The Bark - offered here is a very nice example of the Day Date reference 18078 with factory bark finish. The bezel as well as the center links of the bracelet show the beautifully finished decoration which makes this example stand out.

The bark finish has been discontinued a long time ago and has a beautiful charme.This watch is offered with its original certificate and was sold in 1987 in the United States.

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.
