Rolex is particularly skilled at using hardstone, which is notoriously difficult to handle as it is very delicate and easy to break. The present watch is fitted with a red hardstone dial probably in jasper, which showcases a stunning red bordeaux tone. The dial is elegantly minimal as to highlight the beauty of the hardstone. The present lot is in a good original condition. The beauty of this timepiece is enhanced by the charming president yellow-gold bracelet. It is a great opportunity at a very reasonable estimate.
