Earning the 'President' nickname from its popularity on the wrist of United States president Lyndon B. Johnson, the Rolex Day-Date has had a strong presence in the White House since the 1960s. Offered in yellow gold, this Reference 118238 features the prominent Rolex caliber 3155. With chronometer-grade accuracy and complications displaying both the day of the week and the date in windows on the dial, this model is not only sought after for its elegance and heritage, but also its practical use day to day. The present example comes with its original box and papers dated 07/12/2016.
The watch is in overall very good condition with light wear and nicks throughout commensurate with age. The movement is running at the time of cataloging, however it was not tested for the accuracy of time or duration of the power reserve and may need service at the buyer's discretion. Please note that Sotheby's does not guarantee the future working of the movement.
Case Size (mm)
