Platinum Vignette - Vignette dials were made with the same lacquer which the Stella dials are made with. To obtain the degrade finish on the dial, a special centrifugal technique was used to achieve a soft fading of the color from a vibrant midnight blue color in the center of the dial and a almost black color at the edges. This very example from 1991 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 18346 reference comes in Platinum and is fitted with a factory diamond bezel, much rarer than the yellow or white gold version. This stunning watch is in overall excellent condition with a flawless dial and great case retaining the factory finishing.
|Case||Excellent Platinum case that is not showing much wear from age and remains super sharp and crisp. The factory diamond bezel is also in excellent condition and free of any major wear. Case numbers are crisp and clear.|
|Bracelet / Strap||Excellent and long Platinum President bracelet not showing much wear from age.|
|Dial||Excellent Blue Vignette Diamond dial.|
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.
