Catalogue Note

This stainless steel bubble back is in wonderful condition. The case is unpolished and still retains the original, crisp milled band to the case back and crisp case number. The black lacquer dial is original and unrestored. Twenty years ago, the most collectible Rolex were the ‘bubbleback’ and Prince models from the 1920s to 1950’s. The present watch is a charming example with lovely Gay Freres steel bamboo bracelet.
