The following two lots, 117 and 118, are exceptional examples of Rolex legendary "Prince" wristwatches. Amongst the most attractive Art Deco wristwatches ever made, the Rolex Prince features a very unusual design: a rectangular case, either straight or with elegantly flared sides and a dial with hours and seconds indication of the same size. The models were available in all case materials and combinations and with a variety of dial colours and layouts.
Often called "Doctor's Watch" because of the large hour and seconds indication on the dial, allowing the easy timing of pulse and respiration, the Prince model enjoys great popularity amongst collectors.
