Swiss Luxury Watches. 1905
Introduced in the mid-1930s, Rolex’s reference 2508 was their first chronograph wristwatch to feature two registers on the dial and two pushers in the case. The sporty and large case is very masculine and is considered one of the most attractive case designs by any brand of this era. Collectors divide the model into two generations; the first with a larger 37.2mm diameter case and oval pushers, while the second generation, like the present watch, has a more compact case at 35.2mm and rectangular pushers. It is believed the case diameter was changed to conform to prevailing tastes of the era when smaller, thinner watches were considered more prestigious. In yellow gold with a champagne dial inner blue telemeter and outer black tachymeter with two additional dials for seconds and minutes. Applied gold Arabic 12 and 6 with spearhead numerals and gold spear hands. Mounted on a brown leather strap

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.
