Very rare Rolex Automatic Watch with Calendar and Moon Phase, ca. 1950.
This early Model 8171 is very rare, only a few of these were produced between 1949 and 1952. The majority were made of stainless steel, only a small number were made of yellow and pink gold. The dial of the watch on offer is original and very well preserved, featuring an attractive 2-tone effect, a fine patina, and applied faceted indices. The "Rolex Super Oyster" winding crown is original and is correct for this model.
