A very attractive and unusual combination of rich orange Coral dial and yellow gold. This watch boasts history, comfort, and function, having adorned the wrists of some seriously powerful and influential women. The present watch is a rare example of a Datejust reference 6917, manufactured exclusively with a fluted bezel, with a very captivating orange Coral dial produced in small number by Rolex. Over the years Rolex has and continues to experiment many different dial designs with a variety of hard stones. Due to their fragile nature, many of these dials break during production which increases the manufacturing cost, so these watches are highly sought after by collectors. It is offered in outstanding condition with original yellow-gold oyster braclet and hidden deployant clasp. This particular ladies Rolex boasts a striking stone dial, which complements the yellow finish exceptionally well.
