Finding New Old Stock Vintage Rolex is a highlight in every dealer's life. My heart start beating faster when I open that box and unpack the watch which was sold to us as an unworn new old stock watch. This very Rolex Day Date 18038 remains unworn since the day it was bought in 1988 in Kowloon Hong Kong. The factory finishing is fully intact and no signs of polishing whatsoever. The case back sticker is fully present without any tarnishing from wear. Further the watch comes with everything from new including the original Certificate and box.

In 1956, the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date made its debut. Available only in 18 ct gold or platinum, it was the first wristwatch to display the date and day of the week spelt out in full in a window on the dial. With the President bracelet, originally created specially for it, the Day-Date continues to be the watch par excellence of influential people.


Rolex watches have long been associated with those who have, over time, guided the destiny of the world. No matter their vision, their domain of excellence, or their achievements, the one thing these exceptional men and women have in common is often their watch: the Day-Date.
