A very attractive and classic combination of rich blue lapis lazuli, diamonds and yellow gold. The present watch is a rare example of a Datejust reference 68248 with a very captivating blue lapis lazuli 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. The dial is in lapis lazuli stone and embellished with gold Arabic numerals at 6 and 9 o’clock with diamond centers.
