Eye of the Tiger       - Rolex hasn't left a stone unturned when it comes to the selection of the materials for their dials. One kind of dial which is used since the early 1970s are Stone dials. These come in a wide spectrum including Lapis, Onyx, Coral, Malachite, Ferrite, Tiger Eye and many many more. The process involves precise cutting, finishing and polishing of the dials and given a high fragility many dials were destroyed even during production. Some stone dials were made for both, white and yellow gold, some only for one of the metals. The Tiger Eye dial was exclusively made for yellow gold examples. This was due to the color hues they came in which included brown, yellow and gold tones. No two dials are the same. Offered for sale here is a exceptional and unpolished example of a Rolex Day Date 18038 in close to new condition. It doesn't seem that this watch has seen much wrist time, the case and bracelet are in razor sharp condition showing beautiful factory finishing. The case back sticker is still fully present. The dial is amazing with almost equal gold and brown portions. The nice thing about this dial is that the upper dial graphics are underlayered by a brown layer so the gold font beautifully sticks out. The surface almost looks like a silkly finish, Tiger Eye dials are very mesmerizing. The 'stripes' on the dial almost look like they melted together. This is a rare opportunity to buy a Tiger Eye Day Date in absolute top condition.
