1950s Rolex Ref.3055 18KYG equipped with the famous Val-69 18KYG A very rare baby chronograph with a powder white dial. It is equipped with the rare Val-69, which was said to be the smallest in the world at the time, with a diameter of only 23mm. Although it is a small case size of 30mm, it has a wonderful presence that exceeds the sense of size, and the combination of wedge indexes and alpha hand, which was also seen in the pre-Daytona of the same generation, makes it a very rare piece of watch. The powder white dial is a gem of a period look. Wonderfully preserved, the powder white dial, which is prone to discoloration, retains its original white color and retains the characteristic case shape of Ref.3055 in full. It comes with a valuable Gayflare 18 KYG extension rivet bracelet (for wrist size up to 16.5 cm).
