One of the lesser known models in Rolex's vintage catalog is the gold King Midas manual-wind ref. 3580. This particular pre-owned Rolex is indicative of the era in which it was produced, thanks to the use of an asymmetrical case and a sleek, single-link bracelet. The case itself is left-handed, featuring the crown next to the 9-hour marker as opposed to the standard 3-hour marker placement. The case also measures a modest 27mm, which is balanced nicely by the size and weight of the matching 18 karat yellow gold bracelet. Other notable features include the name "KING MIDAS" inscribed along the flank of the case, a double deployant clasp, and a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. A rare find indeed, no left-handed vintage collector can afford to miss out on an opportunity to add this notable Rolex to their collection.
