Today's offering this dramatic example of one of Rolex's extremely fine ladies dress pieces. Bejeweled with twenty-four (24) high quality, factory-set diamonds, the solid gold case is absolutely gorgeous! This special Rolex not only looks luxurious, it feels it.
Although it didn't really show up in our photos, when viewed in person the diamonds are full of fire and sparkle as one would expect from original factory set diamonds for a Rolex.
Here are a few of the features that earn this watch its place among Rolex's superior wristwatches:
- Exquisite case factory set with twenty-four very high quality diamonds
- Beautiful original bracelet with hammered finish made for Rolex by French jewellers
- Original gold dial with matching textured motif
- High grade, original Rolex mechanism with free-sprung balance for enhanced accuracy. Protected against shock in two places for greater durability
We were fortunate to acquire this exclusive, vintage Rolex in such pleasing original condition. It is 100% Rolex down to the dial, hands, and original large faceted crystal.
Its 14K gold and Rolex factory diamond case is in excellent condition. Its stunning dial presents as just short of mint condition. And its high-grade, Rolex movement is quite pristine.
One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to the its last screw and freshly cleaned and oiled the movement making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
