So far, the only well-known Rolex Rattrapante chronometer is known as a reference. 4113, a watch, only eight of them were made. These extremely rare watches are auction stars and can easily break a million dollar barrier – such as the 4113 phillips sold at the start-stop-reset auction for 2,405,000 Swiss francs, making it the most expensive Rolex watch ever. Antimagnetism several Reference 4113 was manufactured in the 1940s with eight examples, all made of steel, when all the Rolex replica watches timepieces were made of exogenous cores (Valjoux). However, with Dr Crockett’s auction on May 6th, we may have Rolex’s ninth pin chronometer… There may be.
What are we doing here? Looking at these photos, we can see a very beautiful, well-preserved pocket watch with a needle chronometer, an externally purchased core (as is usually the case at the time), and a needle bridge with a “Rolex Geneva” engraved on it. Of course, the dial has the Rolex logo on it. More interestingly, there is a “ZJ” mark on the back of the dial, referring to a dial maker of Rolex replica watch swiss movement. The watch is said to have started in 1955, but is probably a bit old (the core looks more like the 1930s / 1940s) – Rolex sometimes USES older ebauches and loads them later. The core number is 88305 and the housing number is 2885. The case is made of steel and the size is 51 mm. On the back of the case, we can still see all the green labels that Rolex has when it leaves the manufacturing. But one surprise is the lack of reference Numbers.
The main problem with the Rolex Rattrapante pocket watch is the lack of information and, more importantly, the lack of references. No matter what literature you search… In all the literature on Rolex, cheap fake Rolex watch doesn’t mention a minute watch. Never… In his description of Dr. 327, Dr. Crott went so far as to say that “our inquiries about Rolex have not been successful, nor have external Rolex experts been able to provide us with any information.”
Another thing to mention is that Swiss rolex replica pocket watch productivity is very low. Only a few have been made, such as references. 3068, a chronometer pocket watch – see this version sold by Robert Maron, sold by Antiquroum, resold at Antiquorum and eventually by Christies. Once again, the compact Rolex watch makes us curious and skeptical about the authenticity of the Rolex Rattrapante watch.
