Rare & Special: Ladies Rolex Princess Midas, Whitegold Bracelet- / Cuffwatch

Rolex Princess Midas: Rare & Ladies Bracelet- / Cuffwatch

Amazing Rolex Princess Midas (Whitegold) from 1961 according to its serial number and our research and books. The smallest of the three-watch Midas-Series: King, Queen and Princess -- with the King and Queen weighting 200g and the Princess approx 150g.

Of course the relevant 1st series: When Rolex Midas was a standalone series in the Rolex oeuvre and not a later one when it became a cheaper (and lighter) thing and part of the Cellini series.

The watch is for sure unpolished and eventually unworn -- no stretch and no significant signs of use or wear, just some micro-scratches from storing and handling. In this condition the watch, which was made between 1961 and 1963 in probably less than 20 examples, only and just a handful (literally) in whitegold, is probably unique. Fresh to the market.

Between 1962 and 1972 Rolex manufactured 144 King Midas in whitegold. The Rolex to be gifted: Elvis Presley for sold out shows; John Wayne for a blockbuster; Sir Jackie Stewart for the 1969 F1-Championship; Rene-Paul Jeanneret for being Hans Wilsdorf right-hand; and many more: every Rolex Midas tells a in depth-story by itself; even without having a quirky engraving on the case-back and a missing bezel (there simply is none);

Between 1961 and 1963 Rolex made probably less than 30 Queen Midas (ref9904: 200g) and the manufacturing of the smallest of the Midas-watches, the Princess Midas (ref9903: 150g) ran from 1961 to 1962 and resulted in probably not more than 20 pieces (yellow- & whitegold).
