We are delighted to offer to market one of Rolex’s most exclusive models, the Day Date 40 ref. 228206 in Platinum with ice blue, quadrant-motif dial and applied Roman numerals.
The departure of this dial from Rolex’s classical style is subtle but, when taken in the context of Rolex history, stands out as a style bullet point. The dial numerals, in the split block style reminiscent of stencils takes its cues from industrial graphic design. The contrast of the pyramid polished blocks next to the flat polished blocks is a genius touch that makes it visually impactful while sticking to understandable character styles. The dial features alternating directional lines in each of the four quadrants which play with light reflection and creates movement where there is none. All wrapped in Platinum, the noblest of metals, and set on the iconic president bracelet.
Platinum is among the densest and heaviest metals in the world, distinguished by unique chemical and physical properties such as exceptional corrosion resistance.
This particular example is an unworn 2020 model.
