2. 1942 Rolex Chronograph €1.044.900
Twelve classics have been made of this model, of which eight are still in circulation. The watch is 44mm in size, but what makes him really special is the fact that it’s the only split-second chronograph that Rolex ever made.

On May 11, this Eric Clapton Rolex was sold for more than one million euros at an auction in Geneva. The Oyster Albino, as it is also mentioned, is so special because the Albino has a silver-colored chronograph and thus in the same color as the silver pointers. That detail also occurs on two other Rolexes. And you pay for it!
