While busy patenting their Oyster case, Rolex also crafted lady's dress pieces to meet the needs of their female clients. The fine wristwatch showcased in this offering is an example of one of these early lady's Rolex watches.
It showcases an interesting eight sided case solid 9K gold case lightly tinted rose in tone and gold face with sunken so-called "telephone dial" Empire numerals and unusual Art Deco hands. The dial is original and untouched, and the blued steel hands have aged to a nice deep purple.
We have left some of the patina on parts of the case, but that could be removed if you would like.
Our watchmaker has freshly cleaned and oiled the watch. For the finishing touch we have fitted the watch with an expensive handmade strap with Cartier lining designed to replicate the look of an original period ribbon bracelet with the resilence and ease of use of the tang clasp of a modern band.
Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
