ROLEX Queen Midas Ref. 4313 - 1976


Launched in 1962, the King and Queen Midas was a limited edition designed by none other than the legend himself Gerald Genta. The watch the name after the King Midas. In Greek mythology, it was said that whatever he touched with his left hand turned to gold. This may be the reason why the crown in the shape of the sun is placed on the left side of the square case. The first Midas reference was the 9630 and was produced in a total edition of 1000 pieces, which also included the later references 3580 and 4315. Here we have the ladies version of the famous King Midas -  the so called Queen Midas. Interestingly, the unique numbering of each watch was maintained across all models. The number engraved on the back of the upper strap is 4946. This Midas is finished in yellow gold and is in good condition with sharp edges and well defined lines. Dating back to 1976 it does not appear to have been polished. The King and Queen Midas was produced in yellow same as white gold but only in small numbers. Compared to the King Midas, the Queen Midas is even rarer - the exact number of production? Hard to tell but probably not more than couple 100 pieces..
