FOR SALE:

1984 Day-Date, model 18038, 18K yellow gold with original 18K bracelet, serial # 857XXXX, complete set with warranty paper, original box with 18038 sticker and original purchase receipt. (The serial number and previous owner info has been blotted out with red coloring in the photos below but are completely visible on the original documents.) The watch is unpolished and in mint condition.

If you've been holding out waiting for a superb example of a Day-Date to come along at a reasonable price- your search may have ended. Offered for sale for the first time is my 1984 Day-Date model 18038, in 18K yellow gold, with a quick-set date which is commonly referred to as a single quick-set Day-Date. This watch, which is a complete set, comes with the original purchase receipt that indicates the watch was sold on 10/10/85. I purchased this watch from the original owner several years ago and have worn in very sparingly. I have added an original Rolex (not refinished) white Romans dial with the correct, white day/date wheels. The watch comes with the complete accessories from when it was originally sold as well as the original purchase receipt and original champagne-colored dial and day/date wheel set. (There is no dial color indicated on the warranty paper like that found on the later Day-Date models.)

CONDITION / SERVICE HISTORY:


The watch is in mint condition and retains its original brushed finish on the lugs. The case is free from nicks or scratches normally found on unpolished watches. The bracelet looks virtually new and has no stretch. All the original hallmarks on the case are clearly visible as well as the markings on the bracelet. While this is not an NOS watch, it is a superb example of an original Day-Date that has been minimally worn for the past 38 years.

The watch was serviced before my purchase several years ago. I had the watch thoroughly examined by my watchmaker after my purchase and the watch was found to be in proper running order and exhibited no signs of any issues. It is currently running within COSC specifications.

BRACELET:

The original bracelet, model 8385, has virtually no stretch, eight screws with all 24 links.

ACCESSORIES / EXTRAS:

The watch comes with everything depicted in the photos - to include the original champagne dial and day/date wheels.

PRICE / WARRANTY / RETURNS:

$11,500 plus any fees and shipping expense. I am not taking Paypal at this time. Overseas buyers must have the watch shipped to a USA address unless other arrangements are made with me.

The watch is sold "as is." Returns are accepted if the watch is misrepresented and returned to my possession within 72 hours of receipt.

REFERENCES:

I have many references - feel free to ask.
