Many people don’t know rolex.Until now some people think the best watches, no one. And rolex than other wrist
watch with price most the place that myth is its value. Rolex has also been a thriving second-hand market.
Almost every items share even can account for most of the total. You might wonder, auction so many rolex,
which is the most expensive one, you might guess. However, it turned out to be piece of steel sheet, and
doesn’t look like rolex!!!! We come to it.
This steel watch full name is called “Rolex Split – seconds Chronograph Ref. 4113”.It is the translation of
“Rolex 4113 type double track timing clock”. On May 14th auction at Phillips, this number is only 051314 rolex

How could someone strange, now the steel watches rather valuable. In fact, it is totally “content with rare
for expensive” result. As some items in order to improve its value, even destroy another, is completely comply
with the laws of the collection market. Watch of wrist of Ref. 4113 was born in 1942, is the first in the
history of rolex wrist watch with double after timing capability, also is the only one. Ref. 4113 watches
produced 12, each one has a unique number, from 051313 to 051324. The present public appearance is only 8, the
most expensive is the Numbers for 051314. Here are some of its information:
Although the content with rare for expensive, that this watch “thin” where is it? Mainly on the function,
quantity, background and appearance. This watch is equipped with double timing functions, is the most complex
rolex function at that time. And the Ref. 4113 watches are not the rolex produced movement, but using Valjoux
production Cal. 55 movement. Valjoux you may not know, but when it comes to the famous clock movement ETA –
7750 you may know, it’s original name is Valjoux7750, merged the machine factory and ETA later. Rolex bought
later also have no what magnificent burnish. Now, because the function is rare, so the production use 40 s
Valjoux Cal. 55 double track movement of the wrist watch, even if not rolex brand, also can sell hundreds of
thousands of usd, and the price. Have a look at its movement:
Number has said the above, a total of 12, just eight appearances, the number and the background of this watch
is scarce is inseparable. These watchess should be just as a gift to the prevailing car race drivers and the
boss, and there is no sale in the market, it is said that these watchess of Sicily and Italy “Giro di Sicilia”
is closely related to the car. On May 15, 1991, for example, Christie’s auction in Geneva that Ref number
051313, 4113 from the famous driver Stefano La Motta; On October 2, 1991, Christie’s London auction out that
Ref number 051318. 4113 is provided by a member of the team’s widow.
The Ref. 4113 lover, watch case never burnish, keep the lines of 71 years ago. The dial is original, not
through writing. Although the dial of the watch has many stains and discoloration, but for collectors, even
the old original watches will is more valuable than a brand new renovated. And this watch is 44 mm in
diameter, seem nothing today, but universal watches size at the time, in the age of 32 to 36 mm is really very
rare in advance.
After watching these, whether very surprised, rolex is the most expensive watch didn’t drill didn’t gold.Itis
stainless steel watch.I think you can understand, after all, “content with rare for expensive”, some time are
also watching the news said old photos can sell millions, “wrong currency” worth millions. Imagine if you are
crossing the hero, will want to back to the ancient modern, after all, even if it’s only broken bowl is
antique, also has value.
