  • Catalogue Essay

    Released in 2020 together with its vibrantly lacquer coloured counterparts, the Oyster Perpetual ref. 123400 was an entirely new reference all together featuring for the first time a 41mm diameter case evolving from its older ref. 114300 with a 39mm diameter case. Upgraded with the firm’s new cal. 3230 it utilizes the same caliber as the new Submariner ref. 124060 no date. Robust and precise the new caliber is a “Superlative Chronometer” which is accurate to an impressive 2 seconds a day on average.

    The present example Rolex Oyster Perpetual 41 ref. 123400 features a silver sunburst dial from circa 2021, that is offered in unworn “like new” overall condition and complete with its full set of accessories. For those who may think that the lacquer coloured examples are a little to flashy, this clean example is a wise choice.

  • Artist Biography

    Rolex

    Swiss • 1905

    Founded in 1905 England by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis as Wilsdorf & Davis, it soon became known as the Rolex Watch Company in 1915, moving its headquarters to Geneva in 1919. Like no other company, the success of the wristwatch can be attributed to many of Rolex's innovations that made them one of the most respected and well-known of all luxury brands. These innovations include their famous "Oyster" case — the world's first water resistant and dustproof watch case, invented in 1926 — and their "Perpetual" — the first reliable self-winding movement for wristwatches launched in 1933. They would form the foundation for Rolex's Datejust and Day-Date, respectively introduced in 1945 and 1956, but also importantly for their sports watches, such as the Explorer, Submariner and GMT-Master launched in the mid-1950s.

    One of its most famous models is the Cosmograph Daytona. Launched in 1963, these chronographs are without any doubt amongst the most iconic and coveted of all collectible wristwatches. Other key collectible models include their most complicated vintage watches, including references 8171 and 6062 with triple calendar and moon phase, "Jean Claude Killy" triple date chronograph models and the Submariner, including early "big-crown" models and military-issued variants.
