Up for grabs is a stunning, very well-preserved and uncommon Rolex Cellini “King Midas”, circa 1975. The King Midas debuted in 1962, and was produced with the famous “asymmetrical” case for 10 years, until approximately 1972. After 1972, the King Midas Cellini line expanded, and Rolex began to experiment with symmetrical case styles, such as the present reference 4316. Further, Rolex fit many of these watches with interesting stone dials, such as the present “Tiger’s Eye” dial. This particular Rolex King Midas comes to us directly from the son of the original owner, and it is evident that the original owner of the watch wore it sparingly. The watch is very well-preserved, with a sharp case, seemingly unpolished, with crisp hallmarks and engravings on the back, and sharp edges. Further, the dial shows no wear or cracks. Finally, the bracelet appears fully-linked, and will fit an approximate 7.5″ wrist.
