Lot Essay

Preserved in very good overall condition and still retaining the protective green sticker to the case back, the present reference 18378 is distinguished by the strong presence of diamond and ruby exquisitely adorning the dial and bezel. Its luxurious appeal is further boosted by the diamond-set Rolex President bracelet.

Combining the engineering prowess of horology with the elegance and refinement of haute jewellery, gem-set watches unite the best of two worlds. The aesthetic appeal of this superb vintage Day-Date is equal to its undisputed rarity as one of the most intriguing and collectible versions of the Day-Date model, unquestionably one of the key pieces among Rolex's vintage gem-set production.

Symbol of luxury and prestig - gem-set pieces have been made with a variety of different gems, most notably diamond, ruby, emerald and sapphire, and a number of different dial setting designs. Day-Date wristwatches are the line of Rolex timepieces which notoriously presents the greatest variability in dial and case decorations. Even within the same reference, a nearly endless plethora of different details was available.
