A highly collectable and rare 1949 Rolex Ovettone 5030 18K Yellow Gold Oyster Perpetual Chronometer Roulette Wristwatch. One of the rarest "Pre-Datejust" references that represents a forward swing in Rolex's history. The timepiece is in overall excellent condition. 18K Yellow gold Ovettone case has remained thick and full bodied. The gold smooth bezel is very prominent. Original Oyster crown is present. Gold hallmarks on case and caseback are prominent and fully intact. Some expected light wear in keeping with age and usage. The all original white dial has developed a beautiful and light patina with gorgeous colored lume plots, reacts to UV, fade rapidly. Gold sword hands have possibly been relumed early on, react to UV, fade at a slower rapid pace. The chronometer rated Oyster Perpetual automatic movement is running and winds smoothly.

This is an unbelievably rare opportunity to own one of the rarest and most coveted Pre-Datejust models ever created from Rolex.
