Notes

 Property of the original Spanish owner 
 Designed by the famous designer Gerald Genta, the King Midas became an icon when Elvis Presley himself owned one. Usually known for the asymmetric version reference 3680 and 9630, this simpler version was limited (numbered on the bracelet) and is also unusual for Rolex due to the fact that the reference and serial numbers are stamped on the bracelet and not on the case. Consigned by the original owner, it has been maintained in excellent condition showing deep hallmarks and a crisp bracelet showing little wear. Coming in at a whopping 200 grams and fitted with a lapis dial, it is a rare version of the King Midas.
