Rolex – Day-Date 40 – White Gold – President – Meteorite Dial – Fluted Bezel – Baguette Diamond Index

This Rolex Day-Date 40 with model ref: 228239-0055 is crafted from solid 18ct white gold and features a 40 mm case with fluted bezel fitted onto a President bracelet. The rare dial is made from a meteorite which is a solid piece of debris from an object, such as a comet, asteroid, or meteoroid, that originates in outer space and survives its passage through the atmosphere to reach the surface of a planet or moon. It is composed of iron and nickel and makes an ideal material for watch dials because of its density and hardness. Furthermore, the dial features 10 baguette-cut diamonds, used as the time markers. Rolex was the first manufacturer to use slices of meteorite to develop these unique dials, originally featuring them in the Daytona and the Day-Date models. Meteorite dials can now also be found on premium versions of the Datejust, Pearlmaster, and GMT-Master II. This unworn watch comes with the original box and papers, a 2-year Cagau warranty, and the time remaining on the manufacturer's warranty.
