Why We Love it

There are Rolexes you wear to climb Everest, Rolexes you wear to plumb the murky depths of the Pacific.  There are Rolexes for the jet-setting pilot and the intrepid race car driver.  And then there are the Rolexes for a different ilk of man, watches that drip with class and understatement, and defy the status quo of their everyday counterparts.  

The Rolex Reference 3131 "Bubbleback" does not need to flash it's provenance, it does not strain to be noticed.  It oozes classic style without even breaking a sweat.  Drawing on designs prevalent in the brand going back to the 1930s, the Ref. 3131 transcends the moniker "icon" and resides within the Pantheon of the Timeless.  

With its early Oyster case design, and spartan center seconds dial configuration, the Reference 3131 could quite possibly be the perfect vintage Rolex dress watch, and has a collector following all its own.

This particular example dates from 1947 and is in extremely good all-original condition with a rare original Rolex crown (stamped "Rolex Oyster"), original Rolex dial with applied gold even-number Arabic numerals and gold arrow markers, and original gold handset with blued steel seconds hand.  Pulled together in a flawless pink gold case, this watch is a remarkably beautiful piece that would add class and sophistication to any enthusiast's collection.
