1948 Rolex Vintage Ladies Dress Watch - 18K Rose Gold


Item No. 1781

Today's offering showcases this gorgeous original example of one of the company's distinctive and fine 1940's ladies dress watches.

Complete with its 18K rose gold case that features large elegant lugs and a light silver dial (face), it has a timeless elegance and class.

Powering this gem is a fine, early Rolex timekeeping mechanism. Featuring Rolex's patented Super Balance system as well as possessing a tonneau shape for longer running reserve and more accurate timekeeping, it employed Rolex's premier movement technology for the era.

It is fully Rolex down to the dial and original hands and winding crown. The dial has been restored by one of the leading dial experts in North America.

One of our watchmakers has freshly cleaned and oiled the movement. For the finishing touch we have installed a new black cord strap that adjusts to fit virtually any size wrist.

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