  • Catalogue Essay

    Released in 2016, the ref. 116500 and ref. 116503 replaced their predecessors while still featuring the Rolex in-house caliber 4130. Significant updates were presented on the graphic display of the tachymeter scale on the bezel, along with the structure of the lugs and bracelet.

    The present ref. 116503 features a black dial with diamond-set indexes, encased in Yellow Rolesor which is the firm’s patented combination of yellow gold alloy and stainless steel.

    Fusing both form and function, this is an elegant mediator between a classic statement piece and an everyday utility. Offered with its original accessories and guarantee, the present example is in “new-old-stock” condition.

  • 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.
