When it comes to Rolex, a lot matters on the dial. Imagine a day-date Stella dial, a Daytona Paul Newman dial, and a Submariner dial full of subtle differences. As far as the Datejust is concerned, no dial has gained a strong reputation, but lapis lazuli is an exception.
Complex stone dials are always attractive because they are challenging to produce. They are derived from a larger gemstone. Putting aside the cutting process, the first challenge is finding a rough stone that is large enough and high-quality. For a long time, Iran was one of the main places to find high-quality lapis lazuli. But this was no longer an option after the fall of the Shah’s regime. Fortunately, other sources, such as South America and Siberia, also offer lapis lazuli of comparable quality.
In some cases, traces of gold can be seen in lapis lazuli, but this is not the case in this Datejust dial. The presence of gold can add an extra dimension to the lapis lazuli dial, but if it doesn’t, it doesn’t hurt. Rolex lapis lazuli dials are commonly found in gold Datejust or Day-Date watches and are often paired with diamond hour markers. This watch features a white gold case contrasting with a vibrant lapis lazuli dial. Replica rolex watch.
In 2016, this watch was sold by Phillips for 33,750 Swiss francs, which was higher than the midpoint of the pre-auction estimate (20,000 to 40,000 Swiss francs). Although the price of vintage Datejust watches has not increased as much as other models in recent years, these timepieces with unique charm undoubtedly provide a valuable addition to Rolex collectors with discerning tastes.
