ROLEX GALAXY STAR DIAL REF. 6098 YELLOW GOLD
The so-called “Stelline” dials are so named because of the small stylized stars on the indexes. They are exceptionally rare dials, originally fitted by Rolex to very few watches from the late 1940s to the mid-1950s. In particular, they were fitted to “Ovetto” references 6024, 6088, 6098 and 6090, as well as 6062, the latter one of the few complicated Rolex watches ever manufactured. This example is a reference 6098 and is most likely one of the best preserved “Ovetto” with “Stelline” dial on the market.
This yellow gold example of Rolex ref. 6098 is a fantastic and very rare example of an “Ovetto” with a “Stelline” dial. Aside from its undeniable rarity, this 6098 is also exceptionally well preserved. The case still has the original shapes and well-defined gold stamps. The dial is perfectly preserved despite being over 70 years old with the luminous material still present. The bracelet is a few years older, but adds another touch of exclusivity to the watch. An exceptional timepiece for anyone looking to add a piece of Rolex history to a collection.
Serial Number 912XXX, Year 1952.
