Rolex in 1926 gave birth to the first totally waterproof case, named Oyster. Only 5 years later the company introduced the world’s first self-winding mechanism, a totally new era of convenience and functionality. In 2020, after almost 100 years, Rolex made a new style for this watch that stand out of the ordinary, since the dial was made in some particular colors: “candy pink”, turquoise blue”, “coral red”, “taxi cab yellow”, and finally “Rolex green” like the present lot. These are today known as “Stella dials”. Whilst the colorful dials of the Oyster Perpetual 41 mm are not Stella dials, they do remind of a very interesting part of Rolex’s history. It was during the 1970s and 1980s that Rolex presented these dials, which were lacquered with hard enamel. The caliber of this watch is the 3230, and is a movement developed and manufactured in-house entirely by Rolex. Preserved in remarkable conditions with box, original card warranty, booklets and tag, this example of ref. 124 300 is absolutely desired, also considering the recent trend for timepieces with green dials.
