Rolex Day-Date 18038 Champagne Tapestry Dial


A gentle texture on the dial…

The single-quick Day Dates were introduced in 1977 and made setting the watch a lot quicker and simpler than the previous Day Dates.

This example looks so cool with its champagne dial with vertical stripes, known as a tapestry dial by collectors.
This Day Date retains a strong case and the bezel has strong definition and is fitted with an English day disc. These five-digit Day-Dates are really great as they retain the vintage proportions and style, but with a sapphire glass which makes them a very wearable watch day to day !
The yellow gold President bracelet, reference 8385, has a concealed clasp and 55 endlinks and remains in very fine condition. The bracelet will fit a wrist size of up to 18.5cm. The single quick set movement has been fully checked and regulated by our watchmaker.

Each vintage timepiece is individually selected and carefully inspected by our team of experts. After we buy a watch it is mechanically inspected and fully checked by our watchmaker. If necessary, the movement will be fully serviced and tested to ensure it is running to our exacting standards.

We will always describe the watch as fully as we can in our sales texts. Our zoomable images are of the highest possible quality and form an important part of each watch’s description. We will never hide or cover up any element of any watch we sell.

Key to our unparalleled service is Fedex Priority shipping, fully insured. Once you have received your watch, we encourage you to inspect it thoroughly. If you are not 100% satisfied, please let us know. We offer a 14 days return policy. Simply return the watch to get a full refund of the original purchase price.

Our Warranty

We offer a one-year warranty on the mechanical function of the watch, starting from the day of purchase. We do not guarantee the waterproof nature of any (vintage) watch, unless expressly made in writing. Therefore, our warranty will not cover any damage done to the case and/or movement by water or moisture entering the watch. Our warranty does not apply to accidental damage or mishandling of your watch and does not extend to the bracelet, case parts (including pushers, winding stem, crown and bezel), watch glass, dial and hands.
