Special and Extravagant: Lapis Lazuli King Midas

Rolex King Midas Lapis Lazuli Dial, Iconic, Rare


The Midas series is probably the most iconic watch made in the 1960s and 1970s -- and probably holds this title up till today. If it is possible to distinguish a Nautilus from 50m distance, then you can easily spot a King Midas from at least 100m distance -- there is nothing similar or even close to it.

A very extravagant watch in the Rolex King Midas line: This one polarizes -- some people like it, many dont. So it is not a watch for everybody. This historical timepiece is the men model (King Midas, not Queen Midas) and was produced in 1975 according to its serial number.

It is coming in very good condition: hallmarks are deep and visible, surface shows signs of rare and careful wear, the links have almost no space in between / stretch and the Rolex crown on the clasp is clear and nice and not grinded off.

The contrast of massive yellow gold bracelet watch and the lapis dial is hard to beat. Almost 50 years old but still rocking!
