The reference 18346 made by Rolex is one of very few equipped with the more precious and unusual diamond bezel instead of the classic fluted or a smooth one. The present lot is a specimen of this reference and has been produced in platinum with a three-body solid tonneau case extremely well preserved and fresh with clear and deep hallmarks. Another interesting peculiarity is that both bracelet and case are perfect, showing the original design like when it left the Rolex company. Moreover, the dial is full of charm with an argentè layout, brilliant and baguette diamonds applied indexes, English calendar disc and white-gold baton hands. The movement is the automatic caliber 3155 and it is completed by its original Sticker Rolex on the case back.
