 Important and iconic, the 4048. This is the very first three registers, screw back case chronograph Rolex ever made. This example has been gently polished and still renders the full consistency and strength of its solid case. The dial, in a rare pulsometer version, is just about perfect and the watch itself absolutely beautiful.

Case – Stainless steel, monobloc Movement – Rolex, Valjoux 72 based manual wind chronograph Dial – Silver with gilt markers Band – Made in Italy printed leather strap by JP Menicucci
