Spotted: Rolex Day-Date 18039 with cool and unusual diamond dial. I really love the colour and the subtle blending-in of the text.
Property Of A Gentleman: cream Rolex Day-Date 18039
Well, this one was from my personal collection – sadly taken in a robbery. Great dial – case and bracelet could’ve benefited from a rhodium coating.
It is my believe that this dial was made using the same process that caused the cream 16550 to change colour.

Mind-boggling lot sold by Antiquorum in 2007. Although the lot fetched a respectable 1,743,000 HKD, one might wonder wether the set wasn’t sold a few years too early, given the current spike in interest in the Rolex Day-Date. Click the link above for a full description of the lot.
