Made in 1000 examples- each numbered.

The story is that Rolex offered each owner of this watch free entry ino the Rolex factory to see the manufacture of their watches.
Not sure if this has been tested.

I have seen one model in WG as well

A great piece

Thanks

Thank you for the info it is the 5100

I like the fact that it is such a limited number but not sure I like the quartz movement.

5100 is a very rare watch. I'm not a fan of the quartz movement, however, I'd love to get my hands on a White Gold model (limited edition to 99pcs). I once had a WG 5100 with the Oman's Sultan Kaboos signature on the dial. I believe only five 5100 were made for the Oman ruler.

There was a guy on TRF selling a YG 5100. I'm sure he still has it, it's not the type of watch that moves fast.
