Lot Essay

With Rolex servicing invoice and International Service Guarantee card dated 6 July 2012.

A man of undeniably exquisite taste and also a watch enthusiast, His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said al Said, owned and offered as gifts innumerable timepieces. Some of these, blessed with never-before-seen personalisations of the dial, simply made modern horology history as symbols of the ultimate level of watch collecting. The degree of personalisation indicates the level of appreciation the Sultan wishes to demonstrate to the recipient. A simple merit deserves the Crest of Oman (Khanjar) on the dial or the back of the timepiece, while extraordinary appreciation is expressed with a watch featuring His Majesty's signature.

The present reference 1802 was graced with His Majesty's signature beautifully printed in green. It furthermore features a smooth bezel as opposed to the ribbed bezel more commonly used on most Rolex watches.
