Moreover, 1951 was the 25th year since when the first Oyster case has been realized, the innovation and demonstration of cleverness which made Rolex known all over the world.

The yellow-gold case is in great storage conditions, the pure white dial as well in very elegant completed and made even more attractive thanks to the special applied baton and painted black Roman numerals for the hours as well as the luminous dots. Equipped with an automatic movement, yellow-gold oyster riveted bracelet the present watch is the perfect example of essentiality, functionality and utility, what Rolex has always represented.
