The reference 2811 of Rolex is extremely famous among watch lovers due to the atypical constitution of its case, composed of a single solid piece of metal, produced in gold and in stainless steel, the first generation, such as the present watch, with olive-shaped chronograph buttons, the second generation with rectangular ones. The present reference 2811 is an extremely rare model from the pre-war era. After almost 80 years, the conditions of this tonneau-shaped, water-resistant with screwed case-back watch are incredible. The pink dial is almost untouched with two subsidiary counters, the unusual baton and Arabic numerals, a black tachometer scale and a mint light blue telemeter scale.
