Lot Essay

Offered in excellent overall condition, the present reference 16520 impresses by its very rare dial, bestowed with the prestigious Tiffany & Co. signature. Further, the watch was submitted to Rolex for service recently where it was confirmed that the watch was originally sold by the brand in the United States.

Legendary timepiece, the reference 16520 was the first chronograph of the Rolex manufacture to encompass an automatic movement derived from a Zenith ébauche. Built with a larger case than its predecessors and a sapphire-crystal, the timepiece encountered great success and throughout the years, has become highly sought-after by collectors.
