The Bao Dai, Coolest Rolex Watches Of All Time?

Post by koimaster » September 3rd 2019, 9:23am

Certain watches loom large in the imaginations of collectors. They tend to have snappy names, often taken from celebrities, world leaders, and luminaries of other sorts. For me, one of the best examples of this is the storied Bao Dai, a totally unique Rolex ref. 6062 triple calendar moonphase watch made for the Vietnamese emperor from whom it gets its name. There are diamonds, there's a black lacquer dial, and there are a few crazy stories – not much to complain about there, right? Lucky for us, we got the opportunity to go hands-on with this watch before it sold at Phillips in May 2017. It more than lived up to expectations.
