This is an awesome report for the Date Just shown.
Date Nov 11, 1965 which is half a century ago, but the report shows that the time deviation was merely 3 seconds, so that could say what current mechanical advancement after 52 years is nothing better than this watch.
Or this watch was special made to meet such a nice performance.
For sales if you are interested to keep this time pieces.
Vacheron Constantin made the reference 222 in 1977 to celebrate
the firm's 222nd year of continuous watch production. The reference 222 was
limited to 500 pieces in stainless steel, 120 pieces in stainless steel and
gold and 100 pieces in gold. This watch has a close resemblance to the Patek
Philippe Nautilus, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and IWC Ingenieur SL 1832.
“222” on steel was made in 500 pieces. This’s confirmed by
number or reference we (me and other Italian owner) have filed (from 5220XX to
5224XX).There is 3 different types of dial.
“222” is antimagnetic and waterproof until 120 m. Bracelet
is integrate with case. Clasp is not settable, and sealed with Maltese cross.
It’s possible that
steel version was made only in 1977, for anniversary. In fact all serials found
are between 5220XX and 5224XX.
The one I show here is made with 18KT solid gold
Diameter: 37 mm
Thickness: 6 mm
Movement: VC 1121 Automatic made by JLC
It is massive, thin, elegant, simple and a legendary design
of Vacheron Constantin, an Iconic model for Constantin. “222”.
In Chinese translation, “222” sounds like E E E, means Easy
Easy and Easy!
This one is in my hands now, with the Box Special offer to
HKWF VC fans.
Need only a bit money to buy such a great stuff from Rolex
It is a Rare Brand New In Box Full Set Day Date with Onyx Dial.
With 5 year warranty.
It has been arrived Hong Kong after we order from Rolex Swiss.
This is the second one we order after the first one with Coral Dial (Sold in the next day)
yes, Onyx, it is not black paint, not Stella, it is Onyx...
Onyx is mentioned in the Bible many times.
Onyx was not only used as protection from evil witchcraft and enchantments, it could also control undesirable thoughts and bad tempers. It was thought the stone allowed wounds to heal and assisted in childbirth. This is an old Pagan belief adopted by the Christian Church. The Abbey Church of St Alban holds a healing onyx engraved with the image of Aesculapius, the Roman god of medicine. Black onyx was once highly prized for rosary beads, which may be why it is considered good for stress and the banishment of grief.
A lot of luxury brand like Piaget, VC, Rolex, PP, had been actively using Onyx on their watches especially in the year 70-80s especially on dress watch...
Nowadays, almost less than 0.001% watches are made with Onyx by Rolex a year as due to the trend of going sporty, and it is very expensive to made comparing with the ordinary dial mad of bronze or even white gold, Platinum whatever.
Anyway, if you want to stand up in a different format with your wrist.
Onyx (縞瑪瑙, 黑玛瑙) has
a long history of use for hardstone carving and jewelry, where it is usually
cut as a cabochon or into beads. It has also been used for intaglio and
hardstone cameo engraved gems, where the bands make the image contrast with the
ground. Some onyx is natural but much of the material in commerce is produced
by the staining of agate.
Onyx was used in Egypt as early as the Second Dynasty to
make bowls and other pottery items. Use of sardonyx appears in the art of
Minoan Crete, notably from the archaeological recoveries at Knossos.
The ancient Romans entered battle carrying amulets of
sardonyx engraved with Mars, the god of war. This was believed to bestow
courage in battle. In Renaissance Europe, wearing sardonyx was believed to
bestow eloquence. A traditional Persian belief is that it helped with epilepsy.

Rolex used to take Onyx to make their dial on their watch,
we have seen a Submariner Ref 16618 using Onyx on his dial, that watch was sold
at HK$180,000to a Private collector in
I have a Solid gold Rolex Date Just with Onyx dial Ref
16018. That was a awesome pieces but somehow for one reason I sold it to one of
the collectors. That is one of my Watchgrets!
Have you seen Day Date white gold Ref 1803 with Onyx dial? I
Well, 80% cost of a Rolex goes to the dial, so the choice of
the dial as a collectible Rolex is key on its value.
Rolex has stopped making Day Date with Bloodstone, Coral,
Lapis Azuli, Malachite, Tiger eye, birch, OakAfrican Mahogany, Onyxas for
reason of super high cost on the dial material selection, lapping, drilling,
and making the index, it take days to make such a dial. As the yield of making
such kind of dial is low, so as the cost is high.
I think you have not found any Rolex boutique has this kind
of watch in display, so what if there is a Brand new Rolex Day Date in 18KT

dial to HK.
It is Brand new with 5 years Rolex International Warranty.
50% or full Deposit is required for reserve on this watch as
this is likely the only one piece in Asia.
