1950's Rolex Ladies Vintage Cocktail Watch - 18K White Gold & Diamonds


Item No. 7860

Today's offering showcases this rare and exquisite Rolex creation. It is fully Rolex. It is a special creation in the style of those made exclusively for Bucherer, the premier Swiss watch retailer and jeweler. As Hess and Dowling state in their authoritative work on Rolex, watches like this are, "in fact, the last hand made Rolex watches."

We purchased the watch from Australia and suspect it was made for an elite retailer Down Under.

Bejeweled with fifty (50) diamonds, the 18K white Rolex gold case is absolutely stunning! Showcasing a beautiful design with gorgeously feminine curved articulating links, this cocktail watch added the perfect finishing touch to outfits worn to galas, award ceremonies, or other special gatherings.

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

We were fortunate to acquire this important Rolex in pleasing condition. It is fully Rolex down to the dial and hands. The period correct snake bracelet appears to be original, likely added by the jeweler at the time of the sale.

Its case is in excellent condition. Its original silver dial is bright and clean, presenting as just short of mint with one small mark.

One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled its original, high-grade Rolex movement, which is clean and keeping time. We have carefully detailed it making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

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 vintage original.
