Watch details

Rolex Day-Date WG Sapphire Baguette and Diamond Dial "Box and Papers"

REF. 18039

One of our favorite Day-Dates we've featured in a long time, this watch features a very unusual and rare dial with baguette sapphire hour indexes alternating with diamonds. A beautiful combination that undoubtedly makes this Day-Date stand out from the usual silver or champagne dial. Not only is this example rare, but the condition is superlative, and the watch comes with original hand tag, double boxes and papers.


Case has minor surface wear commensurate with its age. No major dings, only minor scratches. Numbers between the lugs are clean and visible, as are the hallmarks on the back of the lugs. Rare original two dot crown is present.


Original sapphire and diamond dial in excellent condition. Luminous dots have aged to a slightly cream tone, and match the hands perfectly.


Day-Date "President" band in excellent condition with 5 removable screws. There is little to no stretch.
