As one of the largest pre-Daytona chronographs produced by Rolex, this reference was noticeably larger than most other watches from the 1940s. It was manufactured at a time when chronographs were specialist tools, only bought by those who needed them. As such, chronographs are much rarer than time-only watches, which are much more readily available.

The watch is in good condition considering its age, the dial has patina as pictured, the case is in very good shape, overall this is a very charming oversized vintage Rolex chronograph.


Known by many simply as 'the Crown', Rolex has certainly done much to deserve its reputation. From its founding just over a century ago by a German immigrant in the UK, Rolex has grown to become an international behemoth, recognisable (and indeed visible) across the globe.

Compared to other modern watchmakers, Rolex is in the near-unique position where its vintage watches have developed an almost entirely distinct collector base. It's no surprise, however, given the diversity and iconic status of so many Rolex models. The vintage Rolex community has arguably brought vintage watch collecting into the mainstream by shedding light on the beauty of old, worn watches which had so long been ignored by most.
