1979 Rolex Day Date WG Stella Lime Green Diamonds Ref. 18039

Dhs. 0.01

Lime Green       -      Rolex really pushed the envelope in the 1970’s & 80’s by introducing hard enamel dials known as Stella dials and named after the company who made the lacquer for these, Stella SA.. These enamel dials came in a riot of colors, tones you wouldn’t expect to see on a Rolex. The Stella colors are oxblood, red, orange, blue, green, turquoise, peach, salmon, pink, yellow, and purple with the latter being the rarest. The rarity of the colors also determine their value. But the rarity (and value) of Stella models lie not only in the color, but also in the material they were made for. White metal cases such as Platinum and White gold had differently configured dials with white coronet and hands. Another factor is the print on the dial which varies with the metal they are made for. What we have here is a super rare example of a Rolex Day Date 18039 with a very unique Lime Green Stella Diamond dial and silver print. The combination of the very vibrant lime Green color and white metal is phenomenal and is enhanced by the factory diamonds. With the market being very dry on Stella dial Day Dates this is a great opportunity to obtain an incredibly rare example for your collection.
