In 1988, Rolex introduced a new movement for the Day-Date generation, caliber 3155. It is the first Rolex movement to have a double quick-set function, making it very easy to correct the weekday and date. Rolex has always loved experimenting and daring in its productions using the most particular design to make absolutely unique dials. These creations are now at the center of a whirling interest from collectors and anyone looking for something rare and unusual. In some cases it is not necessary to be an expert to be able to appreciate certain details on a dial, and this is even easier when the whole dial is special like the present lot with its pyramidal pattern. Moreover this watch impresses by its excellent overall condition, with sharp gold marks and hallmarks under the lugs, and the elegant and unusual silver pyramid dial with Roman indexes.
