Rare Vintage 18k Rolex Datejust “Thunderbird” Watch
The Turn-O-Graph was originally launched by Rolex in 1953, and was by all measures revolutionary in the history of watchmaking and watch design. A watch with a rotating bezel at the time was unheard of, making the Turn-O-Graph the first of this new genre of tool watches. Soon after the release of the Turn-O-Graph the United States Thunderbirds (elite aerobatic squadron) started wearing the watch while flying, which is why today the Turn-O-Graph is often referred to as the "Thunderbird". This watch was manufacture in 1978 but what makes it so rare is that it is crafted in 18k yellow gold! The watch is in excellent vintage condition, and this is a chance to own a rare vintage Rolex so you don't want to miss out on this opportunity to own one!
