1953 Rolex Precision Vintage Mens Full Size Ref. 9022 Dress Watch - Stainless Steel


Item No. 9073

In the 1930's through the 50's, in the midst of their high output of utilitarian Oyster sports watches, Rolex also made much more elegant dress watches. These fine wristwatches often combine a superior hand-wound mechanism with beautiful aesthetics.

The elegant and uncommon dress Rolex Precision showcased in today's offering is a prime example of this phenomenon. It features very fine and dramatic styling and a well-executed handwound movement.

It has a less common sweep seconds function and technical dial with 1/2 markings that served the needs of men in technical, sporting, and racing fields. We absolutely love this combination on the watch - its pleasing blends a dress style with high performance.

Its dial bullet markers really give the watch a vintage look. But what is most striking about the watch is its incredible restored condition.

It is fully Rolex down to the hands and signed crown. It has just finished a true expertly done restoration. Our photos couldn't begin to do justice to it!

It presents in perfect restored condition - it presents as a 9.8 out of 10. Its case presents as mint and all of the Rolex markings are still intact and clear. As is common with these, it has some aging hidden in the engine bay which can only be seen when it is opened. Its dial has been meticulously refinished - the printing could pass as Rolex factory done to the naked eye.

As part of the restoration its movement has just been overhauled by a Master Watchmaker. Photos of the inside available upon request.

For the finishing touch it has been equipped with a brand new leather strap and aftermarket Rolex style buckle making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

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

Don't miss the opportunity to own the perfect complement to your sporty Datejust, Sub, GMT, or Daytona.
