1979 Rolex Ladies Datejust 18K YG (Ref. 6917) Tiger Eye Stone Dial W/ Box & Papers
The Rolex Datejust is one of the most iconic and most beloved Rolex watches ever made, ever since the Datejust was launched in 1945 it has remained a timeless classic and is instantly recognizable as an item of refined quality and functional design. This ladies' Datejust can be worn just as easily with formal evening attire as it can be with jeans and a tee-shirt. This piece would make an excellent start for a new vintage collector, or be a great addition to an expanding collection.
This tiger eye stone dial Datejust is a positively electric example of the rare and exotic 1970s Rolex stone dials. The strikingly rich coloration coordinates beautifully with the 18K solid yellow gold case that surrounds it. A classic fluted bezel and lack of dial markers accentuate the simple sophistication of the piece, making it appropriate to wear for nearly any occasion. The original and also extremely rare Oyster bracelet is a definite value add and unique look for this watch, but shares the same versatility as the more commonly seen Jubilee and President bracelets for the ladies Rolex watches.
