The multi-colored "confetti" dials are coveted among collectors, not only for the sheer rarity of these dials but also for the subtle yet vibrant details that are truly unique amongst Rolex dials as a whole. The term "confetti" is in reference to the compilation of individual colors that make up the single base color of the dial, creating a colorful and speckled dial appearance when observed up close.
