The Vignette Stella - Yes, these Vignette dials were made with the same lacquer which the Stella dials are made with. While painting these were turned around to have that degradee finishing from the vibrant midnight blue color in the middle to the black at the edge of the dial. This very example from 1990 is a stunner and features the double quick set date movement. The diamonds are like beautiful accents on the dial and enhance the rich beauty of it. Further this 18349 reference is fitted with a factory diamond bezel and made in 18K white gold, much rarer than the yellow gold version. This beautiful watch is in overall excellent condition with a flawless dial and great case retaining the factory finishing.

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.
