Description

Oxblood Stella      -      The craving for Stella dials has been strong, within the last years the demand has gone up immensely and the market responded with high prices. It is more and more difficult to find a good example and when you do the price is reflected in the quality. We have traded many Stellas in the past and in our opinion. the Stellas were undervalued for the longest time. Only in the past years collectors have realized the rarity of them and have paid more attention to them. Prices have gone up but there is still a lot of upside, we believe they will become even stronger because Stella dials are indeed very rare. When it comes to Stella dials on Day Dates, we often aim for the most funky colors, yellow, turquoise, coral and so on. The values for these vary a lot and are mainly driven by the colors itself, followed by the metal they are cased in. Stella dials have been cased in yellow gold and white gold with no catalogue mentioning rose gold or Platinum. Now to this particular watch. The oxblood color seems to be the most common color on Stellas as well as usually the least pricy one. Not always. The Oxblood Stella dial encased in white gold is a whole new level. The silver print on the dial blends beautifully with the white metal and gives it an extremely attractive look. The chances of finding a Stella dial encased in white metal are low, hence we are thrilled to offer this exceptional piece in great condition.

THE DAY-DATE 1956

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.

LEADERSHIP

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.
