Rolex started producing Stella dials in the early 1970's and are lacquered dials mainly made in vibrant colors. They have a similar finishing to Enamel dials and are usually highly glossy. The colors of Stella dials varied with production year but as the lacquer for each dial was mixed separately, each dial has kind of a unique color. The current example offered is a Rolex Day Date 1803 with a Green Pie Pan Stella Diamond dial. The Green Stella in my opinion is one of the most wearable and versatile color, especially for men and especially in the Middle East as Green is a special color embedded in the culture. The watch in overall is in a very attractive condition and interesting not only for collectors but also someone who is looking for something that stands out.

In 1956, the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date made its debut. Available only in 18 ct gold or platinum, it was the first wristwatch to display the date and day of the week spelt out in full in a window on the dial. With the President bracelet, originally created specially for it, the Day-Date continues to be the watch par excellence of influential people.


Rolex watches have long been associated with those who have, over time, guided the destiny of the world. No matter their vision, their domain of excellence, or their achievements, the one thing these exceptional men and women have in common is often their watch: the Day-Date.
