Vintage Rolex Turn-o-graph “Thunderbird” reference 1625 from 1960.
The Rolex Turn-o-graph was one of the first watches by Rolex to have a rotating bezel. With a combination in look of sports as well as dress, the Rolex Turnograph is a “go anywhere” watch. Keeping in mind not to compete against itself with the Rolex Submariner, Rolex changed the style and design in the late 1950’s to give it this more crossover style and design.Â Indeed advertising from the era said, the bezel was “a reminder of times past, for phone calls, conferences, timing, parking and countless other ways“.
