Vintage Rolex Moonphase Padellone 8171

By Paul Altieri, 

The Rolex reference 8171 is nicknamed the "Padellone", Italian for "large frying pan", due to its large 38mm size and shape resembling a frying pan. It is one of only two Rolex models to feature a moon phase indicator. Many consider this the ultimate connoisseur's watch due to their rarity and elegance. These watches also indicated the day, date, and month, providing the wearer with a "complete calendar". The original dials on the reference 8171 in steel watches are a beautiful beige color. The reference 8171 was made in yellow gold and pink gold, but the most desirable models were made in steel. Steel models also featured the word "PRECISION" on the dials. Among steel models, there were versions where the hands and markers were in yellow gold as well as versions were the hands and markers were in steel, such as on the present watch. The version with steel hands and markers is more desirable today.
