Launch Slideshow

With a focus on the very best of what vintage horology has to offer, the Geneva Important Watches sale on 13 November presents a rare collection of Rolex vintage watches.
Rarity is a very valuable feature in any wristwatch, and this is especially so when it comes to vintage Rolex. However given the nature and scale of Rolex production, rarity in this instance still usually refers to the manufacture of pieces numbering thousands. To find a Rolex, then, that may have been limited to just as few as nine pieces is particularly noteworthy and incredibly desirable. Click above to see the Rolex highlights from the sale.
