1974 Rolex Oyster Royal Classic Vintage Mens Handwound Watch - Stainless Steel

Rolex

Item No. 7662

One of the more seldom seen classic vintage Rolex watches is the Oyster Precision as Rolex made most watches of this style with a date.

It features a much thinner profile than the Perpetual models - its understated, elegant and classic design contrast the "busier" look of some of the modern Rolex watches.

Today's offering proudly showcases this impressive Certified Pre-Owned mens Rolex Oyster Royal watch in gorgeous condition. It measures 35mm in diameter - in between the size of a Rolex Date and a Datejust.

Powering the watch is its original Rolex Caliber 1225 handwound movement with shock resistance. It looks near pristine.

It is fully Rolex down to the hands and winding crown. It has just finished a true expertly done restoration. Our photos couldn't do it justice.

Its case presents as mint with nice thick lugs that have not been overly polished. Its dial has been meticulously restored - the fonts of the printing could pass as Rolex factory done to the naked eye.

As part of the restoration it has just been freshly overhauled by a Master Watchmaker (a $495 value). It continues to run strong and true.

For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

We also have two fine quality aftermarket bracelets available for purchase so you can choose which look you prefer or switch between them depending on how you feel. One is done in a Rolex Presidential style and one is done is a Rolex Oyster style. Both have heavy solid link designs and are adjustable and brand new. Please see the sample photos in the listing.

Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
