Rolex Steel & Rose Gold Hooded Bubbleback Ref: 3065


Pre-Owned Rolex Steel & Rose Gold Hooded Bubbleback Ref: 3065

Named the Bubbleback for its caseback with the same shape, this reference 3065 is from approximately 1948.  Early vintage watches are always difficult to find, but early watches that are in good condition with correct parts are of course more seldom available.  The overall watch is very attractive, while also showing a patina that comes with age.  The case shows that it was worn, but it is free of nicks and gouges that often accompany watches of this age.  The rose gold in the bezel, between the hooded lugs and on the crown is in good condition and compliments the overall watch.  Matched to a crocodile leather strap, this vintage Rolex should continue to please for years to come.

Rolex is recognized throughout the world not only as a brand associated with luxury, but as a watch that is both luxurious and precise. For Rolex, this hard-won and well-deserved recognition was never in doubt. The founder, Hans Wilsdorf named the company Rolex to be pronounceable in any language, as he anticipated the acclaim his company would receive due to relentless pursuit of precision and accuracy in a wristwatch. Soon after its founding, Rolex produced the first wristwatch to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, which was followed rapidly by receipt of a certificate of precision from the Kew Observatory in Great Britain. From those roots Rolex built a legacy of innovation. The Oyster watch was the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch in 1926, followed by the first self-winding Perpetual rotor. Building once again on innovation, the Datejust became the first self-winding wrist chronometer to include a date in a window on the dial. Adventurous women and men who strive to make history have chosen Rolex for their expedition, which both perpetuates the brand’s claim to precision and dependability as well as attests to its veracity. Hans Wilsdorf may have anticipated the acclaim Rolex would someday achieve, but even he might have been impressed with its success.
