For sale we have a beautiful 2004 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date reference 118239. It is an 18ct white gold model, with white gold fluted bezel and white gold president bracelet. It also has a factory original diamond dial. It has 8 round diamonds, with 2 of baguette style balancing with the date window. It comes with full boxing, documentation and tags.


Aftermarket Diamond Rolex watches cross the line with regards to being garish and ostentatious. Rolex factory diamond dials are considered and provide the ultimate combination of class and luxury. The dial was the finest available from Rolex at the time and is absolutely mesmerising.


The current 36mm Day-Date 18ct white gold factory diamond dial on offer by Rolex, retails for a base price of £34,550 with limited availability. This makes the 118239 a desirable alternative with its similarities and comparatively lesser price.


The watch comes with its original inner and outer box. It comes with its original hang tag with serial number sticker and barcode. It also has the Rolex Day-Date instructions, with original signed Rolex Warranty, dated 2004. It was originally sold by Tourneau in the US. It comes with the Certified Pre-owned card from its purchase as Watches of Switzerland.


The watch was purchased in 2019 by the current owner, via Watches of Switzerlands pre-owned certification scheme. It has since been lightly worn, before being stored in a safe. It was serviced when purchased. The watch comes with a clean watch register check.


The bracelet is long and un-adjusted, with 8 links to one side and 16 to the other.
