This reference 3716 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 water resistant two-body Empire-style case with screwed-down case back and winding crown and straight lapidated lugs has been manufactured in pink gold and despite the almost 80 years of age is conserved amazingly. The pink gilt dial has Arabic and baton numerals, outer minute track, pink index hands, subsidiary seconds at 6 with a charming patina but in real nice conditions. The caliber that powers this watch is the 9 3/4’’’ nickel-finished lever movement.
