Rolex Keeping The Time Of His Life
Very Rare Lapis Blue Dial
The Dalai Lama is considered to be the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism, and he is renowned for his wisdom diplomacy, kindness, smile and peaceful nature. It is difficult to discover what kind or watch he wears, because he always wears his watches, rotated 180 degrees around his wrist. When a watch is word backwards on the wrist, it serves to camouflage the watch, which makes it difficult to observe.
The Dalai Lama also typically goes out of his way to make certain his watches never appear to be fancy or ostentatious. His holiness does so, but typically putting them on inexpensive stretchable Speidel watch bands. In this recent photo, we see the Dalai Lama with Prince Charles, and the Dalai Lama is wearing a yellow gold Rolex Day-Date with a blue lapis dial.
The photo below shows the same Lapis Blue dial the Dalai Lama is wearing in the photo above. This beautiful dial combination is very rare.
In this next photo, taken more than 5 years ago, we see the Dalai Lama wearing a two tone Rolex Datejust on a jubilee bracelet.
