Watch details

For sale is this Steel 36mm Rolex Precision Ref 4224 with Salmon Dial. Being offered for sale here is another amazing and very rare Rolex stainless Steel over sized precision wristwatch. Firstly, the size of this case for a precision Rolex in this time period is very very rare. The condition is immaculate. We do not believe this stepped case with horn/tear lugs has ever been polished. Secondly, the original dial on this piece is out of this world! This mint salmon dial with amazing Arabic luminescent numbers and 60 seconds around the dial is a very very rare variation. The watch comes on an original black lizard Rolex strap with original Rolex stainless steel buckle. Just an amazing watch overall.

Rolex first concentrated on the quality of the movements. The relentless quest for chronometric precision rapidly led to success. In 1910, a Rolex watch was the first wristwatch in the world to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, granted by the Official Watch Rating Centre in Bienne. Four years later, 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. From that date forward, the Rolex wristwatch was synonymous with precision.
