One of the desirable vintage Rolex watches right now is the Oysterdate Precision due to the fact that its understated and classic design contrast the busier look of some of the modern Rolex watches. It's a watch that is perfectly at home being worn everyday or only for special occasions. Produced from the early 1950's into the 1980's, it was a strong commercial success for Rolex, winning a large following.
Today's offering showcases this c. 1970 midsize Rolex Oysterdate Precision. As a midsize watch it suits both a woman looking for a full size watch or a man looking for a smaller watch. The watch comes on its original Rolex Oyster bracelet.
It is fully Rolex down to the dial, hands, winding crown, and Rolex Jubilee bracelet and presents in beautiful condition.
Powering the watch is its original Rolex's handwound movement with date.
Its case presents as scratch-free. And its original and untouched black gilt dial is just short of mint. Its bracelet has been previously upgraded to a newer style Rolex Jubilee bracelet that is in beautiful condition.
Our Master Watchmaker has performed a light servicing on the watch including replacing all waterproofing gaskets with new genuine Rolex seals ($295 value). It winds smoothly and is keeping very accurate time.
For the finishing touch it has just been meticulously detailed making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to its performance.
