Luxury Watches – LeBron James Rocks A Very Affordable Rolex Almost Anyone Can Score
Rolex made waves last year when they revealed a suite of colourful new lacquer dials for their entry-level Oyster Perpetual collection. Initially offered only on the 36mm Oyster Perpetual, the colours included candy pink, turquoise blue, yellow, green and coral red – the latter of which LeBron has opted for, on the larger 41mm Oyster Perpetual.
It’s not the first time Rolex has offered psychedelic dials like this. Back in the 70s, Rolex offered not only the Oyster Perpetual but also the Datejust and Day-Date in an array of dial colours, with even more exotic tones like oxblood, orange and purple. Nicknamed ‘Stella dials’ after the Swiss firm that supplied them to Rolex, watches with these dials were manufactured in limited quantities and were primarily destined for the Middle East market, Bob’s Watches relates.
The revival of these flamboyant dials was passionately welcomed by Rolex fans: there’s just something very appealing about the clash of the bright colours with the classic, somewhat conservative design of the Oyster Perpetual. It also helps that as Rolex’s entry-level watch, they’re comparatively quite affordable (at retail, at least – good luck getting your hands on one for RRP, however).
