Rolex introduced the Prince in around 1928. Two different versions were available at the time: reference 1343, the ‘doctor’s watch’ which has rectangular sides and reference 1490, the ‘Brancard’ with flared sides. The present lot belongs to the second version. Produced in stainless steel, this watch has a dial bearing a double signature as it displays the iconic retailer ‘Bucherer’ name.

Bucherer is a world-famous retailer which has been very closely linked to Rolex since they started selling the iconic brand in 1924.
