Never-Seen-Before Rolex Rattrapante Pocket Watch?

Post by koimaster » November 20th 2019, 10:34am

Here is the story: Dr. Crott Auctioneers is about to auction what COULD be (and that “could” is extremely important to keep in mind…) a Rolex Rattrapante Pocket Watch. This combination; Rolex / Rattrapante / Pocket Watch is something that has never been seen before, which is extraordinary to say the least considering the immense literature about Rolex. So what do we have here? Potentially one of the rarest and most important Rolex watches ever? A superb example of limited (maybe unique) production by the Crown? Or an example of re-casing work done by one of those vintage magicians? What is certain though, is that we are facing a highly interesting mystery (found thanks to watch journalist Gregory Pons).

I read that as "Dr. Crotch."
