My Work Horse Rolex Day Date White gold
Greg's new Purchased Explorer II in HK on 25 Jan 2013
This Chinese tradition keeps unchanged till now.
The most unpopular model is likely White Gold with Blue dial, as that means “難撈", in Chinese, it means "Very difficult to make a living!"
Rolex with White Dial isn’t so good too as it means “白撈”!, That is “Nothing” in Chinese.
Rolex with Black dial isn’t good too, that is “黑撈”, "Black dirt?"
So in short, these are not the preferred colour dials:
The Preferred colour on dial is:
4. Brownish Red (It was very popular in 80s)
So what is the best Colour dial of Rolex for Chinese?
1. Yellow Gold case and strap
2. Yellow Gold Champagne Dial
3. Diamond Dial
4. Diamond Bezel
Recently, we see that HK and Chinese people seem started to accept Black dial.
As For myself I still like most the White Gold Submariner in Blue Dial and I used to wear a Rolex Day Date in white gold with Diamond dial and Diamond bezel. I find that it makes me happy and work along with people smoothly. I like what I like and superstition is not my concern for Rolex.
Ps The Rolex Day Date as my daily working Watch
The Explorer II White dial Ref 216570 Greg purchased yesterday in HK in one of the HK major Rolex AD.
I went to meet the manager who sold you the Explorer II, he told me that you speak fluent Mandarin!! Where did you learn?
I hope the Rolex will be your long trusting working partner!
