For many decades, the Bubbleback wristwatch stood as Rolex’s top-selling model and alongside the Prince, it remains one of the most extensively explored specimens by the Maison. It boasts various case designs, utilizes a wide array of metals, and comes adorned with a diverse range of dials. The current reference 3372 excels in all these aspects. Initially introduced in 1940, its appearance was notably unconventional for its time, yet today, it captivates with its distinctive and alluring features. Crafted from 18k pink gold, the case is impeccably preserved, featuring a unique bezel adorned with intricately chased hour markers and delicately engraved concentric circles. Unlike many, this bezel retains its original finish, exhibiting its definition. The dial, sporting a lovely champagne patinated hue, adds to the watch's appeal. In terms of rarity and aesthetics, this Bubbleback is unmatched, making it one of the most captivating timepieces to grace recent auctions.
