Lunched in 1953, the Datejust Turn-O-Graph was the first model ever produced by Rolex in two-tone steel and gold. Moreover was the first example to be produced in series to feature a rotating bezel. The present piece combines the iconic bidirectional rotating thunderbird bezel with relief writing with a champagne dial decorated with baton indexes and hands with luminous material, date window at 3 o’clock and the “State of Qatar” logo. The 36 mm three-body case in stainless steel with screw-down back and crown and crystal with cyclops lens is very nicely preserved with very few normal signs of usage features a jubilee bracelet with official Rolex clasp.
