Exceedingly rare steel Rolex Chronograph ref. 4500, manufactured in 1946. Reference 4500 was launched in the 40’s and it is one of the rarest Oyster case Rolex Chronographs featuring only two counters. Mainly cased in gold, steel examples are very rare. The present specimen stands out not only for its amazing condition but also for its ultra rare dial configuration: the applied gold indexes and hands, the absence of the outer scales and the consequent oversized registers, improve the understated elegance of this extraordinary wristwatch.
