Natural gems are more or less defective, so the Rolex Rainbow Di uses gemstones will be optimized to achieve a pure, translucent, and rich texture, and the reflected light is very beautiful. Rolex selected and matched the 36 most coordinated color gradients among tens of thousands of gems. This is a very difficult thing.
