  • Catalogue Essay

    A global sensation when it was revealed by Rolex this year – The Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36 ‘candy-coloured’ lacquered dials has been broadly positive and well received. Every colours is a refreshing spectrum of an alternative to the usual black, silvered dial from the regular Oyster Perpetual series.

    Following the vintage Rolex ‘Stella dial’, one of the most exclusive and desirable colours is the yellow Stella. The present OP 36 yellow dial is of no surprise a ‘star’ amongst the selection of the new lacquered dials. The yellow lacquered dial with its rich depth of colour that is pleasing in all angles, it’s hard to find a reason not to love.

  • 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.
