Rolex Day Date 40 Platinum Arabic Dial
Rolex has created some of the most surprising, beautiful and unusual Day-Dates for the Arab States in the Gulf. The manufacture's custom pieces date back to the 1950s, when Rolex fitted Arabic discs to the most luxurious Day-Date watches. Very few "Arabic" Day-Dates were produced during this period, and the earliest examples were almost exclusively cased in platinum - fitting, as Islam prohibits wearing gold.
With the introduction of reference 1804, Rolex produced a Day-Date that completely differed from any "Arabic" Day-Date the firm had ever produced. The watch not only featured an Arabic Day and Date wheel, it even displayed applied Eastern Arabic numerals in lieu of regular Arabic numbers. The watch is named “Scheherazade”, and proudly displayed in Day-Date.
