Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date Watch
At Baselworld 2013, Rolex is introducing a new version in 18 ct yellow, white or Everose gold of the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date with luxurious colourful leather straps and matching dials. A symbol of excellence and prestige, always exclusively in gold or in platinum, the Day-Date was the first chronometer wristwatch to indicate the date and the day of the week spelt out in full on the dial when it was launched in 1956. Its elegance is now expressed in a more informal manner.
Cognac, cherry, chocolate, green and blueThe new colours of the dials and the matching straps vary according to the gold of the watch case: green or cognac for the 18 ct yellow gold versions; blue or cherry for 18 ct white gold models; and chocolate, or a more classic rhodium dial with a black strap, for cases in 18 ct Everose gold.
Gold by RolexThe 18 ct yellow gold, white gold and Everose gold of Rolex watches shine with a special radiance. This is due to the high-purity alloys created by the brand and the meticulous care with which they are cast in its own foundry before being formed, machined and polished in its workshops. The exclusive hue of 18 ct Everose gold, for example, is enhanced by a touch of platinum.
I think my Rolex watch was switched
So, I've owned a Rolex for a long time my ex gave it to me. I had it appraised at a famous appraisal/auction house a few weeks ago and it appraised at 800-1200.
I took it to a pawn shop today because I need the money today, not in May when the next auction is going be at the auction house.
The guy takes it to the back and opens it and tells me it's fake. I showed him the appraisal sheet and he tells me that they don't know what they were talking about.
So, my watch is a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust ladies from the 90's.
I think he switched my watch
