Exceptionally rare 18k yellow gold Rolex “Stelline” ref. 6098 manufactured in 1953.
The honeycomb dial is enhanced by the gorgeous Stelline indexes while its ivory patina is charmingly combined with the warm yellow gold case.
The “Stelline” style dial features star-shaped hour markers and dagger hour markers at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock and it is amongst the most exclusive and rare dials made by the brand.
Produced in very few examples, the present specimen has remained in wonderful condition over 60 years and it represents one of the most sought after time-only references ever produced by Rolex.
