Some of the most complicated watches ever made by Rolex are its Triple Calendar Chronographs, which includes five references produced from the late 1940s until the early 1960s. Commonly referred to as the Dato-Compax or the “Jean-Claude Killy” (nicknamed after the champion alpine skier who was rumored to wear one), the Triple Calendar Chronograph references include ref. 4768, 4767, 5036, 6036, and 6236. The Dato Compax ref. 4768 was the only non-Oyster cased reference with a snap-on caseback and the remaining references all featured water-resistant Oyster cases with screw-down casebacks.
Combing calendar indications and a chronograph complication, the Rolex Killy watch dials include a date indicator border, a day window, a month window, and three subdials. What’s more, the Dato-Compax models were antimagnetic watches, complete with “Antimagnetique” text on the dial.
Available in steel or gold, the Triple Calendar Chronograph models are some of the most expensive vintage Rolex watches in the market.
Within the vintage luxury watch market, Rolex watches reign supreme. Some argue that vintage Patek Philippe watches are at the very top, but the limited availability and often exorbitant price points of most models permit a much smaller group to collect them. Additionally, many vintage Rolex models rival Patek Philippe watches when it comes to both value and desirability, and a remarkably diverse range of variation exists among vintage Rolex models, making them intriguing targets for individuals to pursue and collect.
On the other hand, vintage Rolex watches offer a much larger playing field for watch enthusiasts to enjoy thanks to a wide range of price points and a bevy of different models available. Whether for the novice watch collector with a smaller budget or the seasoned collector with ample cash to spend on timepieces, there are plenty of different vintage Rolex watches to choose from, and all make excellent additions to any collection.
