The Speedking is one of the most affordable options on the preowned Rolex market and offers a simple, time-only movement and a versatile brushed steel finish. Even during its earlier years, the Speedking boasted one of the most affordable price tags in the brand's catalog. In fact, Hans Wilsdorf gave British POWs a Rolex of their choosing and allowed them to pay for it when they can. It's rumored that most of those men chose the more affordable option at the time, which happened to be the Speedking.
The example of the vintage Speedking that you see here today is a mid-size option that features a 30mm case diameter as well as a leather bracelet and a manual winding movement. This intriguing vintage Rolex also features a striking black dial topped with older-style hour markers and hands and Tritium luminous plots that have since aged to a lovely patina.
