This is just awesome: Day-Date Donnerstag at VRF. An exceedingly wicked list of Day-Dates all in one post. Two words, eight letters: MUST READ!
Spotted: to-die-for Rolex Day-Date 1804 in platinum with big diamond dial and Rolex Day-Date 1807 with stella dial and bark Jubilee.
Two great pieces. The big diamond dial is a real stunner.. But the 1807 ain’t too shabby either; great Stella dial and matching Jubilee, which is a somewhat rare sight. Killer.
Please check out the full catalogue at: http://data.antiquorum.com/eng/flip/2013_May_GV/ . Stunning watches to be seen!
Board Talk: great topic about the love-it-or-hate-it bark Rolexes. Some stunning pieces being shown! The very first Day-Date I bought was a 18078.. I will try to dig up a picture.
Member Rocco asks for advice on a stella dial and gets some valuable insights. His original picture has since been deleted, but luckily another member saved a copy.
Member and friend Steve.P shares his superb green hat-trick, as previously featured on ddrlx.
Member G.C. asks for advice on the value of a rare non-tritium Wide Boy dial and matching hands. Good question – hence the lack of an answer? Who knows.. The Wide Boys are very popular at the moment, and the no-lume version is quite rare.

Property Of A Gentleman: threesome of green Rolex Day-Dates.
This is what it’s all about folks. The magic of the Day-Date summed up in three great and exceedingly rare watches.
The 1802 is fitted with a suble Qaboos-signature dial. The 1807 has a great and likely unique dial, with the Omani coat of arms and emeralds in stead of diamonds. The 1806 is fitted with its original brickwork bracelet in matching pattern and a stunning green diamond stella dial. Marvellous.
