Rolex Precision 4222 from 1946 steel oversized 35 mm case
The Rolex reference 4222 is a rare and sought-after timepiece, primarily due to its limited production numbers early and unique design elements. Its larger size for its era (1946), combined with the slim and elegant lugs, make for a distinctive and refined look.
The silvered dial with multi-faceted, sunken numerals and matching leaf hands is also a standout feature, particularly when paired with the recessed minute track in a refined style. The warm patina on the dial adds to the watch’s charm and vintage appeal.
The condition of this watch is so good, that even the Rolex coronet logo and original serial number are still visible on the case back of the watch.
Overall, the vintage Rolex Precision reference 4222 is a rare and desirable timepiece for collectors and enthusiasts due to its unique design and limited production numbers. The condition of this example is something extraordinary too. We never saw a Rolex Precision ref. 4222 in this untouched and original condition. The watch was acquired from the second owner, which purchased it from the nephew of the first owner. The watch has been in his cherished collection for many years. Therefor, we are very proud to offer this exceptional and uncommon Rolex 4222.
