The Rolex Bubbleback is credited as being the first official Oyster Perpetual timepiece, which included a waterproof Oyster case as well as a Perpetual movement with self-winding technology. Its feature set is characterized by a rounded case back that was developed to make room for the movement itself. The barrel-shaped case also includes broader lugs and a distinct dial, which is set with the Mercedes hands that are more commonly found on sports watches today. Dating back to the 1950s, this ref. 2940 is a precursor to the brand's immensely successful line of sports watches that were to follow in just a few short years. As an older pre-owned Rolex, the Oyster Perpetual 2940 also features an acrylic crystal, broad Arabic markers, and a dial and luminous material that have aged over the years and add tremendous character to the overall watch.
