Description

The Turn-O-Graph has long been the awkward cousin in the Rolex family. It always kept to itself and was often shunned by consumers because of it’s unique personality. But, in true Rolex fashion, it has become collectible. In short, the Turn-O-Graph is finally gaining it’s long overdue respect. So let’s examine some specifics. Originally launched in 1953, the Turn-O-Graph was the first Rolex to feature a rotating bezel. Yes, this ground breaking design proceeded both the Submariner and the GMT. In the late 1950s, the name Thunderbird was adopted by Rolex to capitalize on the new partnership with the U.S. Air Force’s Thunderbird aerobatic squadron who had recently equipped their pilots with the Turn-O-Graph. This example has a tasteful 36mm stainless steel case with an 18kt white gold Turn-O-Graph bezel. The Oyster bracelet is the perfect companion to the case, creating a versatile look that can be worn casually or in a more formal setting. The white dial has a distinct red second hand, family name and date. Destined to become sought after by collectors this watch no longer the awkward cousin so much as it has become the unique conversation piece. This watch does not come with box or papers
