Catalog Essay
The present timepiece is a limited edition 1970s Rolex bracelet watch design concept produced as part of the firms Rolex precision reference. During this timeframe, Rolex like many other leading design firms sought to produce higher fashion haute couture bracelet watches in various limited edition concepts that were meant to be more fashionable and appear to be as a piece of jewelry concept of a gold and diamond bracelet than that of the style of a conventional watch design which society was so accustomed to. As Commercial air travel had just been made available to the public and the ability to be able to travel from London to Dubai or Hong Kong to New York with greater ease occurred, the need for a timepiece which had greater attention to detail for greater versatility to meet the demands of the new "Jet Setter" clientele was necessary and as a result leading design firms introduced unique, high fashion bracelet watch concepts such as the present Rolex offered here today.

Sophisticated and Elegant, the present design concept has several elements which exemplify the unique special attention to detail throughout the present timepiece making it not only beautiful but also extra versatile allowing it to be worn day or night as well as with cocktail attire or casual and ultimately making it one of the most timeless examples of Rolex design as a result.

The bracelet concept which draws from inspirations found in nature with a foliate leaf design textured 18kt yellow gold bracelet is in near perfect unused condition and demonstrates the high level of gold workmanship the firm was capable of.

In addition to the well made bracelet, Rolex has designed the present example with a notably beautiful champagne gold satin finish dial. If unfamiliar, satin finish dials are much more desirable than regular dials are they are designed to reflect different hues of dark and light golds as the dial interacts with the light by having the center of it slightly raised. This new concept in dial technology was made popular during this period and is generally incorporated in the firms most prominent designs as an extra amenity.

Furthermore, the bracelet is accented by 6 brilliant white round diamonds elegantly sized and placed with high raised prong set so set against the beautiful 18kt yellow gold textured bracelet, making the overall style very noticeable when worn on the wrist injecting high fashion luxury into a timeless classic wristwatch design and finally the bracelet watch is accented with Rolex's famous emblem the Crow which is located as a raised signature on the clasp and a signature which is only found on select designs from this period.

Also Important to note, the present timepiece is in virtually unworn condition and has been recently serviced.
