Rolex Day-Date Reference 18238 Ruby Bauguette String Dial

Sold
Rubies on the dials with diamonds…

The double-quickset Day-Date was a great development for Rolex as it meant that the date and day could be independently instantly set – this saved a lot of time! This example is extra special as the dial is a rare and very beautiful so-called string dial, where there is a string of diamonds set around the minute markers. What takes this dial to the next level is the presence of baguette-cut rubies at the hours – this is seriously cool and beautiful…

This 18238 comes with its original punched papers that show it was sold in 1990 and it has an English day disc. The watch retains a strong case and bezel and is in overall beautiful condition. The 18238 actually has a slighty thinner case than its predecessor the 18038. The President bracelet has a concealed clasp and remains in nice condition. The automatic movement has been fully serviced by our watchmaker.
