1990 Rolex Day Date Factory Malachite Dial Ref. 18348
"The Green" - There is no other Rolex model which comes in such a big variety like the Day Date. There are differences in the cases, bracelets but most importantly we look at the dials. One group of dial we all go nuts about are the hard stone dials. One of the very mesmerizing hard stone dials is the Malachite dial where each dial is literally a unique piece. The piece of stone selected for this dial is truly exceptional with an overall very attractive constellation of bands in different green shades. The nicer the constellation - the more valuable and sought after it will be. The gilt print on the dial stands out like a nuance on the dial making it blend in perfectly in the case. Further this beautiful dial is housed in a crisp and unpolished case with a factory diamond bezel. This watch is coming from the son of the first owner and judging from the condition as well as information from the owner, has not had much wrist time. A very rare Day Date in incredible condition.
