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 the rare original "star marker" dial. With only an exceedingly few exceptions, these very rare dials are only seen on a few models 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.
It has all original parts. Its solid white gold case is better than near mint. Its very rare star dial is original and untouched. Please inquire if you would like it restored. 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. It is keeping very accurate time. It comes equipped with what appears to be its original black cord strap 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 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.
