Rolex Date Salmon dial
The 34mm Rolex watches are making their way up the vintage watch food chain, and rightfully so. For both ladies and gentlemen this is a very cool Rolex watch, and with it’s smooth bezel and more sturdy looking Oyster bracelet, these Date watches optically look larger then 34mm – Don’t erase this watch-size from your list just yet, stop by and try one on, i’m sure you’ll love it!
We couldn’t just offer any Rolex Date, we’re very happy to present to you this staggering ‘Salmon’ dial Date, this dial colour isn’t a standard one from Rolex, this particular tone occurs due to the aging process of the top layer of the varnish and the ink, creating this warm salmon colour with hints of pink and sometimes even copper tones. To top it off, this Salmon dial is also a ‘Sigma’ dial which means the indices as well as the hands are manufactured from 18k white gold. All Tritium lume-dots located right against the gold hour-markers, and the Tritium inside the white gold hands have a wonderful eggshell colour to them. The original date-wheel features a wonderful serif font with open six and nine numerals – all the above are details us Watchnerds hunt for! The 78350 Oyster bracelet is in a very good condition and shows very little stretch. Both the case and the lugs are nice, fat and sharp and haven’t seen to much polishing – all in all a wonderfully conditioned Date with a very rare dial.
As always, the entire movement was fully serviced and this Rolex Date ‘Salmon Dial’ will be sold with our 24 month warranty.
