Lot Essay

The present timepiece is one of the fascinating small series made with meteorite dials, finished with an acid wash to enhance the natural pattern of the meteorite known scientifically as the "Widmanstätten" pattern, the lustrous silvery effect perfectly complementing the white gold case.

Rolex obtained some of the famous Gibeon meteorite discovered in 1836 by Captain J. E. Alexander scattered along the banks of the Great Fish River in Namibia. The meteorite itself is millions of years old and believed to have fallen to earth in prehistoric times and spread over a wide area. Today, this historical deposit is protected by Namibian law.

In their use of this rare and very exclusive meteorite deposit to make the dials for a series of Daytona watches Rolex again demonstrate their innovation and constant quest to produce rare and exclusive luxury timepiece
