Rolex Thunderbird Ref.1625
Ever see one of these before? Funky, isn’t it? It’s a Rolex reference 1625 Thunderbird and its star, the “Turn-O-Graph” bezel, could never be mistaken for another.
Originally designed in the 1950’s to equip the American demonstration pilots named The Thunderbirds with a proper navigational tool, the Rolex Thunderbird line has since become vintage Rolex lure. As uncommon as they are distinct, these watches have developed a cult following and deservedly so. Not only is the Thunderbird history rich but its style is extremely charming – it manages to balance refinement with sport unlike any other model in their history.
I’m incredibly proud to have sourced this terrific example – enjoy, geeks!
