Antiquorum: Rolex Single-Button 'Staybrite' Chronograph Pocket Watch Sells For More Than Triple The High Estimate
September 18, 2013 | Rolex
A beautiful stainless steel Rolex Ref. 2801 “Staybrite” Single-Button Chronograph from the 1940s just sold at the Antiquorum New York auction for more than triple the high estimate. Not surprising, as most of you already know, Rolex is a brand that consistently commands excellent resale on the pre-owned market. Antiquorum estimated it at $2,000 to $3,000 prior to the auction, and after numerous bids quickly came in — online, by phone and in-person — it reached an impressive final bid amount of $10,000.
