Reference 2508 was introduced into the market in the mid 1930s. The first generation featured oval chronograph buttons whereas the second series, such as the present watch, were fitted with rectangular pushers.
This watch stands out by its charismatic and original pink dial and its excellent overall condition.
Different versions of reference 2508 are described and illustrated in I Cronografi Rolex - La Leggenda, Pucci Papaleo Editore, pp. 80-91.
