Perhaps one of the most visually-arresting vintage watches, this Rolex Date-Day is all about TEXTURE. As your gaze travels from the linen dial to the sparkle of the diamonds to the Florentine finish and polished links of the "Presidential" bracelet. This timepiece iconically shows off 70s luxury Rolex style.

Rolex Date-Day, this model is the same as the original, but 18038 reference features updated case construction and movement. Also rarely seen Florentine finish on the bracelet, Florentine finish refers to the intersecting lines on the case. This was a Rolex factory-specific engraving technique done by hands with origins in Florence, hence the name.
