Catalogue Note

The present lot is an especially opulent tool watch, a combination of attributes which really summarises the era in which it was produced and the occasion for which it was chosen to commemorate.  This particular reference, produced in the mid-60s, was featured in a Rolex advertisement celebrating the inaugural flight of Concorde earning it its nickname.  This lot, preserved in wonderful condition retains its original stick hour and minute hands and small GMT hand, a combination unique to this model.  What is more is the lack of crown guards denoting  this watch as a transitional model.
