I am offering my Rolex Day-Date Ref. 18038 circa 1986. The case is in good overall condition with no major dings or damage to it. The dial features a more uncommon dark blue dial with gold indices and hands. It is very dynamic and shifts shades of color based on the lighting. It features a single date quickest to easily set the date. It also has a 2020 service so it is keeping excellent time.
