Halliburton - Rolex has, over the course of the years commissioned watches for Royals, VIPs, Militaries and Companies, making so-called Logodials. Here's one where it was done for a Multinational Corporation. At six o’clock the dial is printed with an uncommon signature: the “Halliburton” logo. Halliburton is a multinational corporation headquartered in Houston which operates in over 120 countries as a group specialized in public works and in the exploitation of oil fields. It also manages a private military company with interventions in conflicts in various parts of the world, of which Dick Cheney was the former CEO during the period in which he was vice president of the United States. Today it is the second large company for Oil Services in the world. The watch is attractive, showing a great condition and has that little extra, something logo dial collectors will appreciate.

The Datejust is characterized by its date window under the ‘cyclops’ window. Iconic vintage Datejusts were made in 36mm case diameter, with a range of steel and precious metal versions.
