Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date ‘Sigma’ Ref. 6916 circa 1975 | steel automatic lady’s vintage wristwatch

This lady’s Rolex model has a charismatic grey ‘Sigma’ dial with contrasting white printed legend and tracking. So-called ‘sigma’ dials were introduced in the 1970s and are named after the use of the Greek letter which appears at the base of the dial to either end of the ‘Swiss’ graphic. These ‘sigmas’ indicate that the applied numerals to the dial are made from gold. Since numerals/indexes on watch dials are often either punched out from the dial’s surface and/or applied with a plated finish, the ‘sigma’ sign was a useful way to indicate when gold was used, thereby highlighting the quality of materials used. Gold indexes were not used as standard by Rolex and therefore ‘Sigma’ dials are especially prized by collectors.

This watch is accompanied by a green Rolex presentation box with green velvet fitted interior. There is some stretch to the bracelet links from wear.
