1969 Rolex Day-Date No Lume Doorstop Dial

Authenticity Guaranteed / 14-days Inspection Period / 1-year Warranty

First introduced in 1956, Rolex Day-Date became one of the most recognisable dress timepieces in history. The classic design and dial's layout turned to be so well-balanced and convenient, that the very same design (with minor changes of course) is still available at Rolex boutiques all over the world.

This particular piece comes from 1969 and features beautifully preserved case in solid white gold showing still pretty thick lugs and crisp hallmarks. More than that, it features absolutely gorgeous sunburst-finished silver stepped dial. It is notable for "T Swiss T" signature, even though neither hour markers nor hands have lume. Beautifully preserved classics.
