Look at this ALL ORIGINAL and extremely rare 1928 ROLEX classic manual wind in a “Calatrava” style stainless steel ROLEX case measuring 30.5mm. across; 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 3 piece case with wide and (sitting high) polished bezel and down turned steel lugs…beautiful! The dial is rare, valuable and completely original with 3 tones of colour: outer minutes track, middle reflective and inner having 12. 3. 9 desirable ARABIC combination, sub-seconds an 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 1920’s (ROLEX PRINCE era) that rarely surfaces. Steel watches were more expensive to produce than other metals and are quite rare in early watchmaking. If you are a serious ROLEX collector and are seeking an understated yet refined vintage ROLEX that is EXTREMELY rare; this is your watch!
