A Beautiful Red Stella Dial Day-Date

...Rolex Studio Shot Of The Day...

A Beautiful Red Stella Dial Day-Date
with Florentine finish Bezel and President Bracelet
[Reference 1811]

Steve P. took this superb photo of his rare and unusual Rolex Day-Date with a red lacquered Stella Dial and Bark Finished Bezel and Presidential bracelet. Stella dials are dials that have rich popping colors and are sought after by vintage Rolex collectors. This watch has a Florentine-finish bezel and bracelet which looks a little like a "bark" finish. This unusual  bezel and bracelet finish is sometimes referred to as a "Moiré" finish, as well.
