Reference 4099 is one of the rarest chronographs of Rolex’s non-Oyster chronograph family. It stands out by its substantial and angled “flared” lugs. This watch offered here was made in stainless steel or in stainless steel and gold and the lot offered here is a remarkable example of the rare combination stainless steel and pink gold. It boasts a beautiful case with sharp lugs and a definitely crisp serial number on the back. The original opaline white dial shows some fading as can be expected with the passing of time and has applied gold Arabic numeral hour markers at 6 and 12 o’clock, applied dot hour indices, gold baton hands for hours, minutes and sweep center chronograph. There is an outer 60-minute/one-fifth second scale with Arabic numerals every five minutes, and outside of that is a black 20-kilometer telemeter ring and around the perimeter is a Tachymeter scale to 500 UPH. There are twin subsidiary dials, including a running small seconds register at 9 o’clock, and a 30-minute chronograph totalizer at 3 o’clock. To our knowledge, no more than 100 pieces of this reference were produced, making this the perfect opportunity for collectors to secure a piece of Rolex fancy lugs pieces.
