THE ROLEX GILT DIAL
WHAT LIES BENEATH
The early sports watches from Rolex feauture, what collectors refer to as, gilt dials. The gilt dials feature a glossy finish that reminds us of a deep pool of crude oil – like a black mirror. The text and outer minute markers on these dials are a gold colour – hence the term gilt. The colour is actually the brass dial base showing through, as the dials were printed with the text ‘in relief’.
THE TOOL STORY
The Explorer story began in the early 1950s with the Ovettone watches worn by the explorers on the Everest expedition. These watches gradually evolved into the black 3-6-9 dialled watches with ‘mercedes’ hands that are still a feature of the Rolex sports line today.
