Finally pulled the trigger

I've been lusting over several PK's and Rolexes for a while now but a unique piece finally caught my eye and I pulled the trigger on a well maintained 18038 with a rare lacquered Cappuccino dial and a german day wheel. I can't wait to learn more about the nuances of collecting and continue to grow my knowledge base and collection; I'll need to because my wife is already trying to steal this one for herself (last photo).

I’ve been told it is a cappuccino dial in a lacquered finish. @amsterdamvintagewatches (IG) was nice enough to share some insight after I reached out since they have an amazing amount of knowledge in this area.

Excellent catch my friend. Buy yourself a second. The watch look nicer on your wife’s wrist. Hahaha. Hope she is not reading this.

Not an overall fan of the colours but the date wheel is interesting!
