Rolex Datejust 4467 First Series “Ovettone” Red Gold – OUTSTANDING CONDITION

In stock


In 1945, Rolex unveiled its very first automatic chronometer wristwatch that indicated the date on an aperture on the dial. Made in celebration of the brand’s 40th anniversary, the model would evolve into one of Rolex’s most iconic models of all time. This watch is today nicknamed “Ovettone” due to its likeness to an egg.
Over time, reference 4467 has become a cult favorite among collectors, representing an inedible landmark moment within Rolex’s history.

This particular example has been preserved in excellent condition, featuring an eggshell-colored dial displaying an even and beautiful patina. It also features its original Rolex Oyster crown with a brevet cross in the center. Furthermore, the watch retains its roulette red and black date wheel and thin reeded bezel. It would only be later that Rolex produced the fluted bezel that is associated with today’s modern Datejust.
