Indeed, a black matte diamond dial 18238. Question is, why do I need two DD's?^ That‘s your 2nd, right? Didn‘t the other one have diamonds on the dial?
I hadn't seen one in the metal either before this example but I had been intrigued when looking at the DD variations. Think it adds visual interest and texture, though in that same regard, probably draws more attention to the watch.How do you like the bark finish on the bracelet? I’ve never handled it in real life but I’m not the biggest fan in pics......would be curious to hear your thoughts
Congrats on your Sub! Looks great!
Congrats that's a very handsome configuration. I can't recall the last time I saw a Day-Date with the bark finish that did not have a wood dial. I like this version a lot. Congrats again and enjoy it
I also have a 18238. It took me over 6 months, but found one in excellent condition with no discernible bracelet stretch. But to be honest, I hardly wear it. It is a bit flashy, although it‘s never been polished so the case and bracelet are not exactly shiney. I noticed that in the past couple of years they‘ve become quite popular. I guess since you can find them in decent shape starting at 10k.Indeed, a black matte diamond dial 18238. Question is, why do I need two DD's?

Now, where can I find that WG DD?
I think you can email or call the RSC and they'll send a shipping package to ship to the RSC.Rolex service question:
I am due to service my GMT soon. This will be the third service its received, I had it sent in through two different ADs due to relocating. I am now ~45 min from the last AD I sent my watch in through, and ~20 min from a new AD...Is there any added benefit to keeping my business at the previous AD or should i just switch to the new once for convenience sake? I'm not a frequent customer, but I would like to buy a nicer watch in the next couple of years and I know that now a days people need to be on the list to get a certain Rolex models or be considered a 'valuable customer
I'm not sure on what all you can request but I know you don't get to keep the old parts if anything is replaced. From what I've heard, you send the watch and then they send you a list of recommended services, parts to be replaced, polishing and the price of each. You can then choose what you want done.good to know! do you know if you can make specific requests on it? I've got a ding on the bezel, so I'd like to have that replaced if possible...
You can request that they replace the bezel. I did that on Daytona I had years ago. Its not a big deal. They quote you a price, if you agree, they replace it. As @Texasmade said, they keep the old part that gets replaced.good to know! do you know if you can make specific requests on it?

But if you had knocked off your bezel and lost it, you would probably be able to buy a new replacement, no?
