$1,2 Million for Vintage Rolex – New World Record

Christie’s brought the hammer down on the most expensive Rolex wristwatch ever sold at auction. Rare 1949 Oyster Perpetual Rolex was auctioned for a price of $1,2 million and thus set a new world record. This vintage Rolex was expected to sell for between $570,000 and $1.13 million, but strong bidding on Monday pushed the final sale price to more precisely $1,220,632. The Oyster Perpetual model has a cloisonne enamel dial that depicts a whale and ship sailing through stormy seas, an 18-karat gold automatic with sweep center seconds, automatic jeweled lever movement and star numerals.
