Rolex ref 2508.

This model is an exercise in design and innovation by Rolex.

While the majority of Rolex chronograph collector attention is focused on Oyster chronographs, particularly Daytonas, this Rolex reference 2508 is stunning in how it shows its age.

The blue steel hands are beautiful, as are the telemeter and tachymeter scales for calculating approximate speed, this is a unique Rolex details that has not been reproduced since the early 1950’s.
