One watch that you can’t find in the history section of the website, for example, is the Rolex Turn-O-Graph. A shame, because the Turn-O-Graph turned out to be one of the most significant watches for the brand, by shaping the future of the brand identity. The Turn-O-Graph was Rolex’ first tool watch.
The idea that drove the watch was, as so many great inventions, very simple. A rotating bezel with 10-minute increments. Upon release, Rolex marketed it as the “simplest stop-watch ever”, and functioning “as a reminder of times past, for phone calls, conferences, timing, parking, and countless other ways“.
As the years went by the Turn-O-Graph got faded out, re-introduced, and faded out again. One thing that never left though was the impact of the Turn-O-Graph. Tool watches with a bezel became the speciality of the brand, and to this date, the submariner is the most famous watch of the brand.
Today we offer a modern iteration of this classic with its stylish round stainless steel case and the special turn-o-graph Thunderbird bezel made of pure 18ct yellow gold it is the hallmark of this Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust watch. The polished look of the case gives the watch a very luxurious appearance. The watch’s bracelet is formed from a lovely combination of stainless steel and 18ct yellow gold and duly fitted with a hardy deployant buckle. The watch features yellow gold obelisque hour, minute, and seconds hands and index hour markers whose conspicuousness against the grey finish of the dial ensures great legibility. Date is displayed at 3 o’clock. Watch is accompanied with original outer, inner box and all pertaining documentation. It is is in mint condition with some minor signs of wear on boxes.
