This is an extraordinary example of the ultra-rare 3004, this watch has been manufactured in 1934: the stainless steel case has been preserved in extremely great conditions with deep numbers on the case back and Rolex crown. The case itself is also interesting, offering unusual hooded lugs that make the watch look and wear bigger on the wrist than the 30 mm diameter would suggest. The dial is obviously its most striking feature, with a two-tone silver sector dial, the track split by radium hours markers aged and turned to a dark brown color and seconds at 6 o’clock. Real emblem of men’s elegance, this very watch is one of the most elusive references Rolex has ever produced and surely one of the best preserved.
