Lot Description
Rolex. An attractive 18K gold automatic calendar wristwatch with sweep centre seconds and red lacquered dial.
Signed Rolex, Oyster Perpetual, Day-Date, ref. 1807/1803, movement no. DD491144, case no. 2'251'527, manufactured in 1970
Cal. 1556 automatic movement, 26 jewels, red lacquered dial, applied gold baton numerals with luminous accents, sweep centre seconds, aperture for day, magnified window for date, tonneau-shaped water-resistant-type case, fluted bezel, screw back, screw down crown, gilt associated buckle, case, dial and movement signed

This watch was sold At Recent Christie’s with hammer price of US$31,698.
If this is not Red dial, this watch may just be worth $6,000 only. So the Red dial could make this watch so special, again RED is everything for Rolex.


This has the same colour as this Thorens Reference Turn Table, most likely the best Functional, most Performing and most Beautiful Vinyl  Turntable Swiss Ever made for the World of Analogue.

Crazy...
I think the price will nose dive once the trend is gone.
Just like what has happened to red sub and orange hand.

Dear Adrian, It may happen, but the process may take a few years I believe.

Hi Adrian
I think after the red, would be Lapis Blue, the Torquoise Blue, Yellow, Purple, Orange, grey,...then the rest of the ordinary!
