1986 18K Rolex, Chevrolet Factory Diamond Dial, Datejust Wristwatch

Item Details

Rolex wristwatches are among the highest quality timepieces available, both today and throughout the past century. Founded in 1905 in London and later moved to Switzerland, the company is known for its Oyster Perpetual, Professional, and Cellini lines. Rolex set a new standard for accuracy and has generated many patents throughout its history. Given their dependability and durability, Rolex watches are worn by aviators far above the earth and divers deep beneath the sea–not to mention everyone else in between.

Introduced in 1986, this 18K Rolex Datejust wristwatch was created to celebrate Chevrolet’s 75 year anniversary in business. The patterned champagne dial featuring the iconic Chevrolet ‘bow tie’ symbol with diamond hour markers is a standout feature of this watch. A Rolex Jubilee 18K bracelet accentuates the landmark anniversary of Chevrolet’s heritage. The timepiece was gifted only to a certain number of Chevrolet’s dealers making them a rare icon among the Rolex collections
