Rolex ref. #1018 SS "Jumbo" Automatic Item #2694 SOLD
This model is seldom seen! Ref. 1018, C-1967 Oyster Chronometer automatic in a oversize case measuring 36 X 43 mm. It's the size of the Datejust. Very few were made and they don't become available that often. It's referred to as "Jumbo" by collectors. The movement is the chronometer grade cal. 1560. The case is stainless steel and comes with a matching signed crown. The dial and hands are original and in very good condition considering their age. One last thing. Rolex offered this model in two versions and this particular watch is the much rarer "non-luminous" version. The hands are solid and the dial markers are faceted, but no luminous was ever applied.
The watch has been serviced which included full movement service, a new crystal, mainspring, casetube and all gaskets. In other words, proper maintenance/service was done. We also refinished the case to match its correct factory finish. It is paired with a handmade, genuine leather strap with contrast stitching.
