  • Catalogue Essay

    - Officially released in 2020 and discontinued in certain colours in 2022 (including the present model), the Rolex Oyster Perpetual collection with their colourful lacquer dials are an homage to the extremely rare "Stella" dials from the past.

    - Launched in three different sizes, 41mm (ref. 123400), 36mm (ref. 126000) and 31mm (ref. 277200), the lacquered dials were made available in the following colors: pink, green, coral red, turquoise blue, and yellow like the present example.

    -A global sensation when it was revealed by Rolex, the yellow "Stella"liked dial is one of the most desirable colours, furthermore being extremely legible when contrasting against the stainless steel case. At 36mm in diameter the timepiece sits extremely comfortably on the wrist.

    - The present reference 126000 is in exceptional condition and comes with its full set of accessories.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1905

    Founded in 1905 England by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis as Wilsdorf & Davis, it soon became known as the Rolex Watch Company in 1915, moving its headquarters to Geneva in 1919. Like no other company, the success of the wristwatch can be attributed to many of Rolex's innovations that made them one of the most respected and well-known of all luxury brands. These innovations include their famous "Oyster" case — the world's first water resistant and dustproof watch case, invented in 1926 — and their "Perpetual" — the first reliable self-winding movement for wristwatches launched in 1933. They would form the foundation for Rolex's Datejust and Day-Date, respectively introduced in 1945 and 1956, but also importantly for their sports watches, such as the Explorer, Submariner and GMT-Master launched in the mid-1950s.

    One of its most famous models is the Cosmograph Daytona. Launched in 1963, these chronographs are without any doubt amongst the most iconic and coveted of all collectible wristwatches. Other key collectible models include their most complicated vintage watches, including references 8171 and 6062 with triple calendar and moon phase, "Jean Claude Killy" triple date chronograph models and the Submariner, including early "big-crown" models and military-issued variants.
