Rolex Datejust Ref. 16078 Malachite Dial

Sale price$0.00 USD

Straight Facts

There are levels to collecting. For starters, this is a solid-gold Datejust which makes it incredibly rare to begin with - Rolex did not make a lot of these so it didn’t compete with its bigger brother (the solid-gold only) Day-Date. Let’s follow-up that gold with the fact that this also features a bark case finishing from the Rolex factory, rarity has just been increased. Finally is the show stopping dial. This stunning striped beauty of green envy is a stone known as Malachite, which is one of the rarest stone dials Rolex ever made and has become highly sought after by collectors. The present example retains a very lightly polished case, but does feature some slight cracking in the dial around 7 o’clock. This is extremely common in “stone-dial” Rolex models - but also allows collectors a more accessible pricepoint (and a worry-free wear) so that this watch can make your friends green with envy. Soak it up!

*Some marks or spots on the dial are reflections or dust on the crystal and are due to high intensity strobe lighting used while photographing. They are not actually on the watch or visible in natural lighting.

From Rolex & Patek Philippe, to Cartier & Audemars Piguet. As collectors first, we love the small details that separate the Submariner from Daytona and Calatrava from Royal Oak. This is why you'll find our curated assortment spans decades of generations of models and brands. We believe that watches don't just tell time, they tell history - and life is too short to wear a boring watch.
