Rolex has been known to employ the use of bold materials for their watches of special importance. The present watch exemplifies a blue presence for its royal blue sodalite dial, baguette-cut sapphire-set bezel and blue strap. Hardstone dials are extremely delicate to work with, with the most minor imperfections resulting into the fracture of the dial. However, Rolex has accomplished the unimaginable work with their delicate craftmanship, manufacturing not just the dial, but perfected the text printing, scales and Arabic numerals set on the dial. As a natural mineral, no two sodalite dials would be absolutely the same, rendering the present watch unique in its own way.
