Product Description

There is no doubt that reference 4537 is one of the finest and most unusual of all Rolex Oyster chronographs. This example is one of the first chronograph models Rolex produced with three subsidiary dials and water-proof chronograph buttons in the new and modern "tonneau" shape with screwed down back. Many of the style elements inspired the design of the first Daytona models. The reference was only produced in a short run starting 1946 – to the best of our knowledge, Rolex produced only approximately 100 pieces.
The models of reference 4537 are considered the most beautiful wrist chronographs ever made. The distinctive perfect proportions and the clear-cut design make this model easily and unmistakably recognizable. This example has a perfectly working movement and is also in immaculately preserved fine condition with a luxurious rose gold finish and the beautiful, charmingly aged dial that is beloved by all collectors of fine vintage timepieces. The markers of the rare kilometer indicating blue telemeter and the black tachymeter scales near the edge, minute divisions and the signature are still distinctly raised and present an elegant contrast to the gentle patina of the ivory-coloured dial. The rose gold Arabic numerals and hands complete the spectacular overall picture of this exquisite chronograph – it is a must-have for any discerning collector of rare Rolex chronographs.
