Rolex first decided to concentrate on the quality of the movements and its relentless quest for chronometric precision rapidly led to success. In 1914, Kew Observatory in Great Britain awarded a Rolex wristwatch a class “A” precision certificate, a distinction which until that point in time had been reserved exclusively for marine chronometers. It’s not a case that the English origin brand decided to call one of its models simply “Precision”, to emphasize and make this personal ability and peculiarity even clearer. The Reference 4370 here presented to all of you is probably one of the nicest in all its simplicity. The circular steel stepped case is refined with very nice and well-preserved fancy lugs and a snap on the back with no evident signs of wearing completed by the silvered dial with subsidiary seconds at 6 o’clock that match perfectly with its Gay Freres Bracelet.
