Key Highlights
  • Enduring Appeal: Released in 1988 and discontinued in 2000, the 18238 was the last Day-Date reference to embody the traditional Day-Date design. Yet, it was enhanced with modern features that granted it remarkable longevity, making it a best-seller among both men and women even today.
  • Modern Movement: The 18238 was the first Day-Date to feature the caliber 3155, which includes a double quick-set function, allowing easy adjustment of both day and date displays—a significant upgrade from the previous caliber 3055.
  • Iconic Design: Featuring a solid gold 36mm Oyster case with brushed lugs, a fluted bezel, and a variety of dial options. Oh, and a President bracelet with a hidden crown clasp. What more could you ask for?
  • Fun Fact: Nicknamed the "President" or "Presidential," the Day-Date spans the spectrum of influence, worn by figures from U.S. Presidents like LBJ to sports legends such as Michael Jordan, and business titans like Warren Buffett
