Amidst the enduring images of GMT Masters and Submariners, the design of this “no dial” Rolex stands out, excuse my French. It surpasses all other Rolex dials I’m familiar with. Devoid of hour markers, its dial is crafted from a rare semi-precious stone. While the AAA perfect fake Rolex Day-Date is a cornerstone in Rolex’s collection, this particular iteration, which discards almost all traditional dial elements in favor of a profound ultramarine lapis lazuli stone, is truly remarkable.
By retaining only the day window at 12, the Rolex brand inscription, and the date cyclops at three o’clock, the dial alone is sufficient to captivate attention. It exemplifies the principle that sometimes less is more, particularly considering the lapis lazuli stone’s ability to exhibit almost purple and golden hues when bathed in direct sunlight. Would I make a purchase? No, as I require hour indexes for a sense of completeness. Interestingly, I find this design more striking than any number of jewels adorning high-quality replica Rolex watches.
