Rolex 26 blue vignette diamond dial with full box and papers.

The vignette dial by Rolex is arguably one of the most beautiful dials that they ever produced, and add diamonds to the dial and you have a watch that not only captures the eye and light, but is absolutely breathtaking from near or far.

Here is the ladies 26mm Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust made in 18 carat yellow gold and stainless steel in 2002 that is destined to always be admired each time that it is worn.

The vignette dial was made the same way as the coveted Rolex Stella dials, with both being made with applying over a painstakingly amount of time lacquer to the dial by only the most experienced technicians. The only difference is that the dial for the vignette is set on a rotating platform when the lacquer is applied, and the varnisher has to very carefully apply more coloured lacquer to the outer edge resulting in a darkening edge, resulting in a stunning gradient that goes from a lighter colour in the centre, to an intense vivid colour that with this one, is set with ten diamonds.

Inside the 31 jewelled Rolex calibre 2235 has recently been serviced by Rolex and comes with a two year international Rolex warranty, and comes with its Rolex box, papers, swing tag, recent Rolex service papers (August 2023) and instruction papers.

With the 18 carat gold and steel Rolex Jubilee in fantastic condition along with the case and movement, this really is one of the best blue vignette dials around, and backed by Rolex's international warranty.

Where can I service my Rolex watch in Sydney?

Kalmar Antiques now employ a Rolex trained watchmaker on site!

When we expanded and renovated our store in late 2022, we put in not only a full watchmaking and polishing workshop, but a watchmaker who used to work for Rolex for nearly seven years. This allows us to be able to service your Rolex to Rolex standards, as well as other watch brands such as Omega, Cartier and Patek Philippe to name a few.

How often should I service my Rolex?

We recommend to service your Rolex every five years. If you wear the watch in water, we strongly suggest having your Rolex watch, or any watch for that matter, pressure tested once a year.
