Lot Essay

An iconic timepiece, the Rolex Daytona has established itself as one of the most coveted chronographs of the industry. Blending perfectly with the philosophy of the Genevan manufacture, it is robust, fitted with the highly reputable caliber 4130 and showcases the creativity of the brand. Available in different metals, with or without gems, examples of the model featuring a hardstone dial have become true collector’s favorites.

An attractive wristwatch, 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 timepieces.
