Mens 1976 Rare Tudor Oyster Devon Cased 4540 Stainless Steel Watch – Serviced

What a gorgeous piece! A well preserved rare Tudor Rolex 4540 with the rarer small rose Tudor logo. Devon cased Oysters was produce in 1946 only. The term used for these extremely desirable pieces is “form Oysters”, as their cases take a form, or appearance, that is very different from their normal cases. It is a manual wind watch measuring 34mm. A rare and unusual watch in great condition where rolex came away from there traditional cases. An Important point other than it being Devon cased to note is the original lockdown crown with the Oyster Patent stamped on the side.

Overall, this is a rare Rolex Oyster in one of the most attractive form case styles that the company has ever produced. Combining rugged, waterproof Oyster construction with very stylised aesthetics, this watch is something of the very best of both worlds, combining sports watch practicality with elegant looks. Any vintage Rolex Oyster that departs from the traditional case shape is automatically very sought after collectible, simply because so few such models were built in the first place. Although this was originally made to be waterproof, I wouldn’t put any watch of nearly 80 years old under any type of water and is being sold as none waterproof.

Finished with a new old stock tan pig skin genuine leather strap perfect for a 1940’s vintage timepiece.
