  • Catalogue Essay

    At the beginning of 2020, Rolex brighten up the moon by offering a vibrant array of Oyster Perpetual models featuring a series of brightly coloured lacquer dials as a subtle homage to the iconic “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 colours, yellow, green, coral red, tiffany blue and pink (only for ref. 126000). Immediately making an impact on the first day of its launch, the model has since become one of the most sought-after Rolex sports model in recent times.

    The present example Rolex Oyster Perpetual 41 ref. 123400 from circa 2021 features arguably the most desirable colour in the mix, “Tiffany” blue. With the recent burst in interest for timepieces featuring the specific colour at an all time high. Announced just this spring of the discontinuation of the "Tiffany" blue 41mm variant, the present “like new” example complete with its full set of accessories is a chance for collectors to acquire one right now.

  • Artist Biography

    Rolex

    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.
