The Rolex Oyster Perpetual here offer is a nice and well-preserved watch: it has to be considered, in fact, that this example has more than 60 years since it has been produced in 1958 as demonstrated by the serial number reported on the case. This reference 4021 perfectly captured the Rolex’s essence of ingenuity adding a distinctive flair. Its style is essential and basic, set mainly on an elegant aesthetic and a delicate shape. The tapered shapes of the case realized in yellow gold have withstood the passage of time in a remarkable manner and are kept in excellent condition: this is exemplified by the presence on the back of the original Rolex sticker with the typical green color still vivid and the serial numbers so far crisp. The pure argentè dial has applied triangle, roman and square numerals and is perfectly preserve with no signs. Equipped with the automatic perpetual caliber 1030, one of the most reliable movement ever produced by Rolex and used on many different models such as Oyster Perpetual, Submariner and Explorer, the present watch is the perfect example of essentiality, functionality and utility, exactly what Rolex has always represented.
