The wristwatch here offered is a Rolex Oyster Perpetual reference 4467, known all over the world as the “Ovettone” among collectors. This very model is historically important because it is the world’s first self-winding chronometer wristwatch to feature date in a window on the dial, setting the standard for how a date display on a wristwatch should function. The two-body case with inclined bezel, screwed down case back and crown, concave lugs of the present lot is in full 18k pink gold and is impressive for all-original condition and quality of conservation. It is also provided with a very nice pink gold Oyster bracelet with Rolex claps. The dial has a Matt beige background with applied pink-gold dart and faceted baton indexes. Externally, the outer minutes and fifths of a second division with Arabic five-second numerals and at 3 o’clock the date wheel.
