Rolex Oyster Ref. 4444 steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1945

A stainless steel manually wound centre seconds wristwatch

A lovely example of this relatively early Oyster model, the watch’s dial has a wonderfully warm patina with a rich lustre to the surface. The modestly sized steel case is a two-part model with solid upper body and separate screw-down back. Rolex’s ref.4444 is especially unusual for its use of a scooped rather than chamfered bezel and this watch retains its original 1940s Rolex Oyster crown.

This watch is fitted with a fully stitched vintage watch strap with steel pin buckle.
