Expensive Rolex In The World $1.176
The most expensive rolex in the
world sold at auction in 2011 for $1.176 million
at Christie’s Important Watches sale. There
were only twelve of these exceptional timepieces
created by Rolex, and only eight still exist today
that are known. The Ref 4113’s were made
as gifts to famous Italian and British race drivers
and team owners who needed the watches’
chronograph functions to monitor their lap times
during the early 1940s.
The reference 4113 Rolex consists
of oversized stainless steel split seconds chronograph
which has a nickel-finished lever movement, 17
jewels, silver matte dials, applied pink gold
Arabic and baton numerals.
Other features include outer
minute divisions, blue telemeter and black tachymeter
scales, two subsidiary dials for constant seconds,
30 minutes register and a split seconds chronograph
mechanism. The 1942 Rolex had been earlier estimated
according to the auctioneers to sell for between
$681,818 and $1.13 million.
