"The Revolutionary Turn-O-Graph.
Not only are Turn-O-Graph amongst Rolex's best sellers, but after 63 years after their launch, they are still considered true icons in the world of fine watches."
This Marvelous example cames in a completely untouched and unrestored conditions and with the most interesting dial configuration, Black Gilt with raised indices and radium.
The case 18Kt case bares on the back a beautiful and enigmatic engraving; the watch was probably gifted to a secret lover.
The reference and the serial are fully readable between the lugs.
