Rolex. A Fine and Rare Stainless Steel Triple Calendar Wristwatch with Moon Phases Model/Reference: Perpetual Precision, 8171 Movement No: 67266 Case No: 686065 Year: Circa 1950 Calibre: 13''', automatic Dial: Silvered dial, two windows for day and month, date ring, moon phases, signed Case: 38mm, stainless steel, snap back, signed Strap: Rolex buckle, associated leather strap Fußnoten 勞力士,「Perpetual Precision」8171型號,精緻罕有精鋼三曆自動腕錶,配月相顯示,約1950年。 The "Padellone" (Italian for Frying Pan), is one of the most sought after of models produced by Rolex, and the reference 8171 is one of only two models they created which featured a triple calendar and moon-phases, the other being the reference 6062. It was manufactured in a small series between 1949 and 1952 and the unusually large dimensions for the period, (38mm), has contributed to the continuing popularity of this reference today. Produced mainly in yellow gold, fewer in pink gold and even less examples in steel, there are reputedly only between 300-400 examples of this reference number ever produced in all metals, with steel examples the most in demand.
