1940's Rolex Ladies Vintage French Cocktail Watch - 18K Rose Gold & Diamonds


Item No. 8577

Today's offering showcases this rare and exquisite Rolex creation. It is fully Rolex. It is a special creation made exclusively for the French market. Watches like this are the last hand made Rolex watches.

Bejeweled with seven diamonds, the 18K rose Rolex gold case is absolutely stunning! Showcasing a beautiful large rolling hood and an interesting angular design this rare watch really stands out to even the seasoned Rolex collector. Its bracelet has a wonderful tubular spring design that flexes to provide a bit of size adjustment. You will be the only person you ever meet who has a Rolex like this!

The brilliant diamonds are white, near flawless, and full of fire as one would expect from original Rolex factory contractor set diamonds.

We were fortunate to acquire this important Rolex in pleasing condition. It has fully Rolex parts. Except for the genuine Rolex crown, which was a later servicing addition, all of the other parts are original to the watch.

Its original case with all of the correct French hallmarks is in excellent condition. Note that the two marks on the left side are hallmarks, not damage. Its complementary salmon dial is original and untouched.

One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and overhauled it. It is keeping very accurate time.

For the finishing touch we have carefully detailed it 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 full-page custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.

If you are looking for a true treasure for that special someone in your life, this is it. Modern Rolexes don't match the charm and romance of this rare vintage original.
