Solid Gold - Daytona with Black MOP Dial

The Rolex Daytona is a special timepiece - very iconic and even more so if it were gold.

I was traveling this year and met with an owner who loves her Daytona - solid yellow gold and with a very special Black Mother-of-Pearl dial.

The MOP dial is rather special. My first encounter with this combo.

The watch is well worn - and for good reasons too - its such a nice piece.

But I guess it is time for a service and polish.

I wonder how much it will cost to have it restored back to its former glory.
