As one of the most recognizable watches produced by Rolex, the Day-Date is often thought of in its original yellow gold form with president bracelet. This is not that watch.
Still in the traditional 36mm case, this Day-Date is a modern take on the classic. Cased in 18k white gold and on an 18k white gold bracelet, reference 118209 "Blue Waves" is fun and more closely resembles a sports watch than a dress watch. The dial is what characterizes the watch with horizontal undulating waves of darker blue set on a lighter blue background. Radial Arabic numerals surround the dial.
In a market that puts a hefty premium on steels sports watches, this is a great chance to get a solid gold watch that closely resembles the sports watches that are so popular currently at a similar price.
The watch is in very good condition with few light signs of surface wear to the case.
There are some slight signs of the case back being opened to the case back.
The dial is in excellent condition.
The bracelet is in very good condition with only few light signs of surface wear.
The bracelet is on the smaller side with 10 links plus end links.
The movement is running at time of cataloguing; 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.
The bracelet circumference is approximately 148mm
