In a surprising move, Rolex, known for its conservative approach to special editions, has unveiled an ultra-exclusive Day-Date 36, paying homage to its 15-year partnership with the prestigious Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The Rolex Vienna Philharmonic Day-Date 36 limited-edition timepiece, crafted in 18ct yellow gold, captures the essence of classical music with its finely crafted dial featuring a violin and its volute.
Rolex’s commitment to excellence in the arts is exemplified by the creation of the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 36. The exclusive version, launched in honor of the Vienna Philharmonic’s New Year’s Concert, boasts a meticulously crafted dial representing a violin and its volute. The champlevé method of grand feu enamel creates a unique design etched directly into the yellow gold base. The hand-colored shades of green, a nod to the brand’s emblematic color, add an elegant touch to this limited-edition masterpiece.
Underneath the Rolex Vienna Philharmonic Day-Date 36 is the heart of this luxury timepiece, the caliber 3255 movement. Renowned for its precision and technological prowess, this movement not only displays the day and date but also ensures accurate timekeeping with hours, minutes, and seconds. The Superlative Chronometer certification guarantees exceptional performance.
As with any Rolex special edition, the Day-Date 36 Homage to the Vienna Philharmonic comes with the caveat of exclusivity. Limited quantities have been produced for select clients, and acquiring one may prove to be a challenge. The unveiling at the New Year’s concert garnered excitement from performers and guests alike, with renowned artists like pianist Yuja Wang and vocalist Cecilia Bartoli already getting their hands on this unique timepiece. While specific sales information is yet to be released, interested individuals are encouraged to reach out to their local Rolex dealers for more details on how to acquire this coveted limited edition Rolex Vienna Philharmonic Day-Date 36.
