Rolex started producing Stella dials in the early 1970's and are lacquered dials mainly made in vibrant colors. They have a similar finishing to Enamel dials and are usually highly glossy. The colors of Stella dials varied with production year but as the lacquer for each dial was mixed separately, each dial has kind of a unique color. The current example offered is a Rolex Day Date 1803 with a Green Pie Pan Stella Diamond dial. The Green Stella in my opinion is one of the most wearable and versatile color, especially for men and especially in the Middle East as Green is a special color embedded in the culture. The watch in overall is in a very attractive condition and interesting not only for collectors but also someone who is looking for something that stands out.

Arguably one of the most iconic watches ever made, the Day-Date aka the Rolex President was introduced in 1956 and was the first to feature both the day and date in dedicated windows on the dial.
The Day-Date is the top model in the Rolex line-up and comes in an array of configurations with rare and special dials and case decorations. It has only ever been made in precious metals with Automatic movements and historically with an elegant diameter of 36mm - the perfect size for an iconic dress watch.
