The Rolex Day-Date is the top-of-the-line model in the Oyster series. Nicknamed the "President," this watch was seen on the wrist of heads of state, celebrities and captains of industry. In the 1960s, Rolex experimented with colored enamel dials, known as "Stella dials." The range of colors was too bold for the conservative clientele that Rolex had in that decade and as a result, few were sold. Today, Stella dials are rare and extremely collectible. The oxblood Stella, seen on the present example is an eye-catching color that alternates between a maroon and a chocolate brown depending on the light source,
Condition
Dial is in very good condition with minor age-related wear. Case is very good, with minor scratches and some evidence of polishing. Movement is running at time of cataloging. Overall, the present example is in very good condition.



Pre-owned watches, unless still in original packaging or never worn, will likely have some degree of wear and scratches. This should be expected for many of the watches offered in auction. Even if a watch is running, bidders and buyers should expect that all movements will require maintenance. Watches are not guaranteed to be keeping time. Fortuna recommends that all successful buyers promptly take their watches to a professional watchmaker for evaluation.


Any reference to condition in a condition report will not include a full description of condition, and for example, may not specify all faults, alteration, adaptation, mechanical replacements or imperfections to the movement, case, or dial. Colors and shades may look different online or in printed materials than they look on physical inspection, and images may not clearly show the condition of a lot. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot in person and make their own evaluation of the lot. They must understand that any statement made by Fortuna Auction LLC ("Fortuna") is merely a subjective, qualified statement and does not constitute a representation, warranty, or assumption of liability by Fortuna. All dimensions in catalog descriptions are approximate. No warranties are made that watches in water-resistant cases are currently water-resistant. Fortuna does not guarantee the authenticity of any individual component parts, such as wheels, hands, crowns, crystals, screws, bracelets or leather bands, since subsequent repairs and restoration work may have resulted in the replacement of original parts.

Prospective buyers should also refer to any notices as well as the Conditions of Sale in Fortuna's print catalogs and made available on its website, digital bidding platform, and other third-party digital bidding platforms. Please note it is the purchaser's responsibility to comply with any applicable import and export matters, including but not limited to customs regulations, duties, and lots incorporating materials from endangered species. NOTWITHSTANDING THIS REPORT OR ANY DESCRIPTIONS OR DISCUSSIONS CONCERNING A LOT, ALL LOTS ARE OFFERED AND SOLD "AS IS" WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED BY FORTUNA, THAT ANY OF THE LOTS FOR SALE ARE MERCHANTABLE OR SUITED FOR ANY PURPOSE.
