Lot Essay

The present Datejust is distinguished by its attractive and intact onxy dial with gilt printing. It is furthermore preserved in very good overall condition.

While Rolex offered a range of Datejust models with stone dials, including lapis lazuli, marble, various hardstones, opal, coral and malachite, the black onyx dial is perhaps the most recognizable for its unadorned starkness. With its endless black, absence of hour makers and minimal printing to the surface, examples fitted with this particular dial take on an almost abstract quality where time rather than being specific, becomes an approximate value.
