The Rolex True Beat is a rare wristwatch originally designed for doctors to measure seconds.

The Rolex Tru Beat

Rare and attractive rolex tru-beat from the mid 1950’s. The rolex true beat is a watch designed to read time by the second, it originally has a dead beat seconds movement which was very useful for doctors and scientists. 

The tru-beat rolex is powered by the automatic caliber 1040, as the mechanism for the true beat was hard to service many of these examples have the true beat mechanism (which remains out of four extra parts added) removed. 

The example we offer for sale has the original 1040 movement, unfortunately the parts making the tru-beat happening have been removed at earlier service, therefore the watch runs like a regular automatic Rolex watch. The movement has been fully serviced and is running smooth. In the last picture we have marked the missing parts under the automatic module with a red marking, they are hard to find unfortunately. 

It has the original ‘swiss’ signed dial with radium indices and hands, the dial shows some wear but remains in overal good condition. The case is very strong and the back has a number written in it starting with TX…… from what we believe this I a doctors identification number from the us (Texas)
