15238, ‘Ghost’ Dial Date, Yellow Gold
A ref. 15238 Date in 18k yellow gold with a sunburst dial that has faded into denim-teal tone with near fully-ghosted text print. Both are the effects of age and wear in sun. This is a 34mm case, made as alternative to the Datejust’s 36, with quickset date and applied beveled indices. It’s a minimalist, very simple expression of one of Rolex’s simplest mid-century offerings.
