We start from 1945 with the ref. 4467, the first "Ovettone" (big Bubbleback) recognized as such, because it inherits the same case structure as the famous younger brother, the “Ovetto” (Bubbleback). Very few are known of this first model. Firstly, very few were made and only in yellow and pink gold since it was a commemorative model for the 40th anniversary of the Geneva House, and second, even fewer have survived in good condition after seventy years!
On the wrist it has is a massive but discreet presence, and the dial has developed a creamy and uniform patina while still visible and luminous.
The case and back are in spectacular condition! We deliberately did not intervene in any type of restoration, leaving the history of the object visible, as can be seen from the perfectly intact hallmark. it features a typical feature of the time: the “Roulette” date window, with alternating red and black numbering, making the watch a decidedly significant piece in a Rolex collection.

Dial: originalwhite, creamy change color, black graphics, applied goldindexes and feuille tritium hands. Center seconds and window for the date at three o'clock.
