4500: The 4500 is widely considered to be the first oyster chronograph made by Rolex. Production started around WW2, and as such, examples like this one are exceedingly rare.
Nice case with no corrosion. Serial numbers are fully visible, and the pushers and oyster crown are all original.
Dial is in excellent unrestored condition. The blue telemeter track is fully intact, and the word "SWISS" can still be seen at the bottom of the dial. The applied steel markers and arabic numerals make for a breathtaking vintage chronograph.
Comes on a leater strap with original Rolex buckle.
