Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Musketeer Paul Newman Ref. 6264

Rolex Antimagnetique Reference 4113

This Rolex Reference 4113 is the main watch in the whole closeout. Its last two closeout appearances set precedents, and the 1942 Antimagnetique will likely perform comparatively this time around also. Maybe on the largish side at 44 mm, its size doesn’t make any difference since it won’t probably ever be worn again. Perhaps the main watch the Geneva-based brand has at any point made, Reference 4113 is viewed as the first in class Rolex.

This Chronostop model was ideal for their missions, likely tied to their thighs (as one may have done around then), the enormous oignon-style crown and pusher at 2 o’clock made for simple use when wearing gloves. A phenomenal 1959 form with maybe even its unique calfskin strap.
