What is not known is why they were produced. Some believe as a prototype to show Rolex a potential new variant. Others say they were commissioned by Ferrari for their racing team at the time.

Unfortunately, we'll probably never know 100% for sure.
WOW! That's in a league all by itself! I guess this is one of those situations where if you have to ask you can't afford it. Russell.
