This amazing watch is also referred to as “Octopus” due to the design of its President bracelet and is a rare example of a Datejust reference 6913/8, manufactured with a beautiful diamond-set bezel, with a very colorful malachite dial produced in a small number by Rolex. Over the years Rolex has and continues to experiment with 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. This particular ladies Rolex boasts a striking stone dial and it is completed by its original Rolex warranty. Of outstanding quality the present watch is an exceptional Datejust that will mesmerize those who are able to marvel first-hand at its beauty.
