 Gentleman's Stainless Steel Antimagnetic Wristwatch, Rolex, circa 1934 at Dupuis Auctions

Gentleman’s Stainless Steel Antimagnetic Wristwatch, Rolex, circa 1934 at Dupuis Auctions

Rolex is a name that always creates a stir at auction. This model, lot 148 in the Fall 2013 auction, sold for nearly double its estimate. It doesn’t look like the popular image of a modern Rolex, but this rare timepiece was very interesting to bidders. Is this 1930’s steel chronograph like something you might have in the back of a drawer somewhere? Consignments are being accepted across Canada until April for the Spring 2014 sale.
