1988 Rolex Day Date White Gold Birch Wood Dial Ref. 18239

Dhs. 183,800


Woody Woodpecker - what we have here is a really rare bird, the Rolex Day Date Reference 18239 in white gold, but not just any. The presented watch is in mint condition and retaining sharp and crisp from any angle. With the very little stretch showing on the bracelet we assume that it was only worn occasionally. The dial in this 18239 is a rare Birch Wood dial with a very warm and bright color. The dial is in new condition and does not show any blemishes or wear. The wood dials are sensitive to humidity and many you see around show waves which become detectable by gaps at the edges. This one however probably never came even close to humidity and remains in impeccable condition. The fact that the hands, indexes and crown are in silver color, means the dial was made in very small numbers specifically for a white metal watch, this enhances the rarity tremendously. The idea of having a piece of wood in your watch is kind of bizarre but it also makes it quite unique, especially because two pieces of wood are never the same. This watch is a conversation opener and you will love to speak about it.
