HISTORY IN BRIEF
The mother-of-pearl dials for the Rolex Daytona are the object of desire of many collectors at this time.
As it happens for other particular dials, like those in hard stone, there is not one MOP dial identical to another.
This is also the reason why many are so attracted by this special dial.
The reflections, the color, the nuances differ in each specimen as the mother-of-pearl is a a very particular and unique material.
Given the exclusivity of this type of dial, over the years Rolex has provided official dealers with several lots of spare supply dials in order to satisfy the requests of customers who wanted to have such a special watch on their wrist.
This is why finding a gold Rolex Daytona like the present specimen with its original mother-of-pearl dial with the correct graphics is increasingly difficult due to the many alterations that many of these watches have had over the years.
The watch is in like new conditions, showing no signs of wear at all.
It was purchased by the former owner in 2006 and it was basically never worn.
Every component perfectly matches the production period, not luminous black “Tahiti” Mother of Pearl dial, 4130 COSC Caliber, gold deployant clasp with original Rolex strap.
The watch comes with original papers and box.
Also note that the american warranty clearly states that the watch was born and sold by the official AD with this rare type of dial.
Indeed, a very important fact for a collector who is looking for a non – altered specimen with a special dial of reference 116518.
