very good, capable of running.
This Rolex reference 2811 is one of the rarest Rolex chronographs ever. Size and design are similar to that of the Patek chronograph reference 130; the watch features a flat bezel, flat square chronograph push buttons and a magnificent, unrestored silvery dial with applied red gold hour markers and hands as well as a blue telemeter scale. Reference 2811 was available from 1930 on in gold and steel; the first generation came with oval chronograph buttons, the second generation such as this example had flat square buttons.
The piece offered here is in exceptionally good original condition. The dial and hands are in excellent condition and show some charming signs of age; the case is of outstanding quality, the engraved numbers on the back are deep – this is a unique, marvellous opportunity to own one of the most beautiful and rare timepieces ever.
