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.
