This magnificent President 40 mm 18k Yellow Gold Rolex Day-Date (228238) is presented to you with great pride. When it was first introduced in 1956, this was the first Rolex watch to show the full-day description on its dial. It is, without a doubt, a piece that symbolizes elegance and style. This timepiece is in very good condition showing minor signs of wear. The watch comes with an outer/ inner box, warranty card, booklets, and a bezel guard. The watch was sized at the dealers; however, it includes all links.
The fluted bezel of this watch is a point of distinction, as is the silver dial with Roman numeral hour markers and the date at 3 o'clock. Assuring the watch's waterproofness was one of the original purposes of screwing the bezel onto the case on Rolex timepieces. On this Day-Date 40, it has been transformed into an ornamental feature and a mark of distinction.
Both the concealed folding crown clasp and the semicircular three-piece links president bracelet are made of luxurious 18 ct yellow gold.
The watch has a 3255 automatic movement, which gives it a power reserve of up to 70 hours as proof of the company's ongoing dedication to technological advancements. Additionally, it has a 100-meter water resistance rating.
This watch is a luxurious timepiece you cannot leave out of your collection. Sign up and place your bid!
