One of the most collectible of vintage Rolex is the Bubbleback. These gorgeous early automatics are increasingly being tucked away in collections and are getting harder and harder to find. Here's a 1944 vintage reference 2940 Rolex Bubbleback in stainless steel: ROLEX (Reference 2940 SS Bubbleback Automatic Chronometer) - Signed 31x39mm stainless steel screwback case (reference 2940, serial #2480xx) with personalization on the caseback, signed 17 jewel chronometer automatic movement, very good aged gold satin dial with full arabic numerals, blued steel and luminous pencil hands and gold sweep seconds, signed screwdown crown, brand new generic black leather strap with stainless steel buckle. The stainless steel screwdown caseback on this vintage Bubbleback bears the reference number 2940, and the serial number 2480xx places the date of production at 1944. The steel caseback is in good condition, and the knurls on the screwdown caseback are crisp. The inner caseback is signed "RWC Ltd.,", and "Brevetee, Rolex SA, Geneve-Suisse, 31 Victoires, Haute Precision, 2940." The signed Rolex perpetual chronometer movement was completely serviced recently according to the watchmaker from whom I purchased the watch. The dial is in very good aged condition, and is signed, "Rolex, Oyster Perpetual." The watch is finished on a brand new generic black leather strap. This is a highly collectible vintage Bubbleback, and Bubblebacks are getting harder and harder to find. 1944 VINTAGE ROLEX REFERENCE 2940 SS BUBBLEBACK OYSTER PERPETUAL CHRONOMETER!
