When it comes to Rolex chronographs, there is the legendary Daytona and then there are the pre-daytona chronographs from the 1950's. The rolex feautured in this article is a very small (29mm) stainless steel chronograph and is pushing 70+ years old and is unlike any Rolex you've ever seen.
This particular piece has a 17 jewel movement that is signed by Rolex and functioning perfectly. It also has "a multi-color tach scale and original hands," which only add to the value of this watch. We love the big Rolex crown, which tells us this may have been designed for a pilot, as large crowns of this day were typically made that way to be set while wearing pilots' gloves.
