I have just been chatting with a very knowledgeable man from RWC and he informs me that in the 1970's Rolex made some dials for one season only and for Italy only.

I have also seen this same pattern in stunning Rose Gold. The watch was LNOS and I missed it - I am still haunted by my lack of action.

Not only did they make rare and interesting dials they apparently made one off unique dials also. Most of them went into special one off Platinums.

it's the dials above all else that make DD's so much fun to chase.

Check this one out!

PT1804 sold at auction some years back.

All the best,

That you did not bid for that watch! With Philippe out of the picture, you would have gotten it for a good price, I am sure!

Still in HK? Yes I saw that watch, and I cant believe I did not buy it.

I think Day Date fever is on the rise.

Best,
