This is one of the most exquisite watches I’ve handled, one of the first vintage watches I’ve encountered early in my career and never forgot about it. The King Midas with burgundy dial and matching strap has been in my heart since the moment I’ve seen it.

Elvis Presley to the max ( Elvis did wear a king Midas Rolex, though on bracelet) and one of the most unusual Rolex out there: the asymmetrical case and strap, left hand crown and colorful dial give an explosive mix and a stunning visual rare for a vintage Rolex.

3 million serial dates it to 1973.

The case measuring 27mm is in pristine conditions with original horizontal brush finish, sharp edges and crisp lines. The original sticker on the case back is intact along with crisp serial number engraving and Rolex coronet. WOW.

The mesmerizing dial is really attractive with it’s mirror like burgundy / bordeaux background changing in appearance in each different light. The gilded Rolex signature is in mint conditions along with the hand set.

The original and incredible Rolex crocodile cognac strap asymmetrically cut is in mint conditions along with the original Rolex gold plated buckle.

The manual wind movement is running well and winding smoothly.

Dare I sound redundant, this watch is drop dead gorgeous. Not for the many but for those who appreciate individual taste!
