Pink Mother of Pearl - Mother of Pearl dials didn’t get much attention until lately and lately means in context since the Daytona market has started flying. This very stunning example of a white gold Daytona dates back to 2001 and is an early example of the Rolex movement Daytonas after the Zenith Daytonas were discontinued in 2000. The overall condition of this piece is very pleasing with its fat case in superb proportions and stunning dial, a pink Mother of Pearl dial. The dial looks very pure with its glass-like surface. The color plays in different lightings and varies from snow white to a beautiful pastel pink. The pink MOP dial is not very common and we dare to say it is rare. To finish it off nicely, the watch comes with its original Warranty Certificate from Japan.
