Footnotes

  • Rolex were commissioned by the military of many countries to produce specially designed and adjusted watches. The Peruvian Air Force started to use Rolex for their watches in the 1960's and as with all the special commissions of the time they engraved the case number on the inside back of the case. The Fuerza Aerea del Peru ordered only a few chronographs making this Daytona example very rare and sought after. The special commission for this watch would have been that Rolex engraved the back with Fuerza Aerea del Peru. One additional feature of this watch is that it has a Sigma symbol dial denoting the batons are made of white gold.
