    We are proud to present this collectable Rolex Datejust Turn-O-Graph ‘Thunderbird’ watch for sale.

    Launched in 1953, the Rolex Turn-O-Graph preceded the two other iconic Rolex watches that are famous for their rotating bezels – the Rolex Submariner and the Rolex GMT-Master. Since the newly introduced bezel offered great practically by allowing wearers to time different types of events, the Turn-O-Graph is also considered by some to be the first Rolex tool watch. In the late 1950s, the U.S. Air Force’s Thunderbird aerobatic squadron equipped their pilots with the Turn-O-Graph watches for navigational calculations. Rolex took full advantage of this opportunity and produced the “Thunderbird” Turn-O-Graph watches.

    This version the reference 116261 was produced in the early 2000’s and was discontinued in 2011 making it quite rare. It comes set in a polished 36mm stainless steel Oyster case with an elegant yellow gold fluted bezel, which rotates and features black numeral markers every 10 minutes around the bezel with each flute of the bezel for 1 minute. The dial is a striking silver sunburst colour with applied yellow gold baton hour markers and a striking red sweeping second hand and matching red Turn-O-Graph text. The date window also features red numerals on a contrasting white background. The dial is protected by a sapphire crystal glass with the signature cyclops lens and has a screw-down crown for basic water resistance. The watch is powered by the Rolex calibre 3135 automatic chronometer rated movement and comes fitted on the iconic steel & yellow gold Jubilee bracelet with a concealed folding clasp.

    Originally purchased in December 2006 and in mint condition (light mark on the bezel), this Turn-O-Graph comes with its original inner and outer boxes, swing tag, seal, instruction booklet, leather card holder, and perforated international warranty paperwork. This Turn-O-Graph is sold with a 12-month warranty from SWC.

    This would be a great piece for any Rolex collection.

    I was absolutely delighted with the service from Tim. As a new customer I was understandably nervous in buying a watch not from an ‘Authorised Dealer’. Tim helped me understand the process and made me feel assured in him and the company. To be safe with this type of transaction, it is most important to find a dealer who you feel confident in. Once Tim explained about his history and that of the company, I felt very comfortable. I knew then that this was where I wanted to buy my new watch from. Pick your dealer first then – find your watch. I explained to Tim my budget and what I was looking for. Within a few weeks Tim got back in touch to say he had a time piece which may interest me. At all-times the communication perfect – and we were able to complete the transaction. The watch arrived very well packaged to a high standard – including all original boxes and papers. I would highly recommend them – and wouldn’t hesitate buying from them in the future.
