Notes

According to our research, this is the first Rolex Day Date reference 118388 with an Onyx dial and diamond set bezel and lugs to appear in auction. The contrast between its onyx dial and its yellow gold case gives it a very special character.
Preserved in perfect condition and accompanied by its original box and papers, this watch is a very interesting piece to complete a Day Date collection.
