The term Sigma dial refers to the addition of the O symbol flanking the T Swiss T signature at the bottom of the dial that resembles the letter Sigma in the Greek alphabet. The "O" on the Rolex dials refers to the Italian word "Oro", or the French "Or", and indicates the use of white gold batons. Sigma dials, particularly with the famous "Big Red" Daytona signature, are considered the most desirable dial after the Paul Newman version.
