This is a pre-owned Rolex Day-Date 36 rubellite diamond unisex 118238 watch. 36mm case size in yellow gold, rubellite diamond dial on a yellow gold oyster bracelet, powered by an automatic movement. This Rolex is in excellent condition complete with rolex box & manual. Circa 2001.

Offered here is an excellent example of the rare Rolex 18k Yellow Gold Day-Date, with Rubellite Diamond Dial reference 118238 manufactured circa 2001.

This superb 18k yellow gold Day-Date is fitted with an incredibly attractive and equally rare rubellite dial with diamond-set numerals. The textured effect of the rubellite adds flair, movement and intrigue to the dial layout and furthermore provides a perfect canvas for the diamond-set numerals to shine on. The calendar windows, like with all hard-stone dials, are framed in precious metal.

Hardstone dials are among the most attractive and collectible dials to have ever found their way into the Day-Date line up. Beyond the present rubellite, other stones have been employed by Rolex: Onyx, Grossular, Malachite, Marble, Agate, and Jade are just some examples of this remarkable diversity.

The Day-Date range has historically been a template for Rolex to display un-bound creativity. As a result, Rolex went well beyond its usual bounds with experimenting with different dials and the Day-Date can also be found with other dial options, inclusive of onyx, wood, lacquer, fossil, rubellite, marble and coral.
This example has the correct Rubellite Diamond dial and yellow gold surrounds to the day and date apertures for its K780--- serial number range.
