This Rolex Datejust reference 1611 is part of an exceedingly rare series made especially for His Majesty Qaboos Bin Said Al Said, Sultan of Oman. Realized in 18k yellow gold the present lot has a particular bezel with Florentine finishing that recalls the one present in inner links on the gold jubilee bracelet. The conditions of the entire watch are absolutely notable for brightness and conservation while on the screw back is still very clear and deep the engraving of Asprey, to confirm the originality of the logo on the dial. The dial has, indeed, the rare and desirable red Khanjar at 6 o’clock and is further distinguished by its unusual gunmetal-gray color.
