Look at this all-original and extremely rare 1928 Rolex classic manual-winding watch in a Calatrava-style stainless steel Rolex case measuring 30.5mm across, which is larger than a boys-size Rolex, but smaller in stature as the earlier round Rolex watches were. This fine and rare watch reminds me of an early and classic Patek Philippe in its very clean and fine design, having a three-piece case with wide and (sitting high) polished bezel and down-turned steel lugs. The dial is rare, valuable, and completely original with three tones of colour: outer minutes track, middle reflective, and inner having 12:00, 3:00, 9:00 desirable Arabic combination, sub-seconds, and blued steel hands. The early, Rolex 15-jewel movement was just cleaned and is keeping accurate time. The steel back is signed “ROLEX 25 VICTORIES.” This is a very rare and important Rolex watch from the late 1920s (Rolex-Prince era) that rarely surfaces. Steel watches were more expensive to produce than other metals and are quite rare in early watchmaking.
