In the 1950's while making mostly sporting style watches, Rolex crafted special wristwatches of the finest quality to meet the needs of their exclusive clientele.
The unique and rare ladies wristwatch showcased in today's offering is a wonderful example of one of those pieces. The centerpiece of this watch is rare original "star marker" dial. With only a very few exceptions, these very rare dial are only seen on watches made for the U.S. market.
With its a timelessly styled case and a fine Rolex mechanism, this gem fits in well on the wrist of an attorney, executive businesswoman, or any woman desiring to wear a true world-class wristwatch.
This rare and classic Rolex is in pleasing condition. Its solid gold case is mint. Its rare dial is a vintage restoration. And its high-grade Rolex movement is clean.
One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it. For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new black cord strap that replicates the style of the original making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
If you are looking for a treasure for that special someone in your life, this is it. Modern Rolexes don't come close to matching the charm and romance of this vintage original.
