In this episode of “What Is On My Wrist” Cam talks about an incredibly rare and highly sought after Rolex Day-Date ref. 18238 that possesses an onyx stone dial variant. For a short period of time, Rolex manufactured timepieces featuring exotic materials. Such as dials mode from various minerals, woods, and stone including Black Onyx, African Mahogany, Lapis Lazuli, and Birch among others. Most commonly these watches were produced in 18K yellow gold. These style variants are always strikingly vivid with high contrast and minimalist design. Due to only being in production for a short era, today’s collectability for these pieces is very high.
