Lot Essay

To fulfill the demand for sporty, yet elegant wristwatches Rolex produced exceedingly small series of highly gem-set models mainly in the 1970s and 1980s.

Considering its very good condition and hard to beat visual appearance, this Day-Date is a great opportunity for a forward-thinking collector to secure a unusual timepiece for his (or hers...) Rolex collection.
