This vintage Rolex is in excellent condition. There are light marks and scratches consistent with the watch's age. The dial is relatively clean, with very light spotting.

Designed and manufactured before the famous Daytona chronographs, these rather uncreatively-named "Pre-Daytona" chronographs are often underestimated by collectors chasing to more iconic chronograph. Made in the 1950s and early 1960s, they feature more complex dial arrangements and flourishes (like this telemeter scale dial) not found in later Daytonas.


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.
