Rolex first decided to concentrate on the quality of the movements and its relentless quest for chronometric precision rapidly led to success. The present lot reference 2576 is one of these creations born according to the dictates of Hans Wilsdorf. The untouched two-body rectangular yellow-gold case with snap on back is intact and the mobile hinged lugs are unusual and match perfectly with the case. The dial is very particular with a rare painted radium indexes, outer minute track, subsidiary seconds at 6 o’clock and completed by its gold baton hands. This specimen definitely represents a mix of essentiality and particularity that makes a rare opportunity not to be missed.
