Today's offering showcases this rare and exquisite Rolex creation. It is original and fully Rolex and according to Bucherer advestisement from the period, watches like this were made exclusively for the premier Swiss watch retailer and jeweler Bucherer.
As Hess and Dowling state in their authoritative work on Rolex, watches like this are, "in fact, the last hand made Rolex watches."
Bejeweled with fifty (50) diamonds, the 18K white Rolex gold case is absolutely stunning! Showcasing a beautiful design with two large brilliants as the centerpiece, this cocktail watch as it is called, 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 all-original condition, down to the untouched dial, hands and original winding crown. Attached to the watch is what appears to be its original or period snake bracelet.
Its case is in excellent condition. Its silver honeycomb dial is original and shows only light signs of aging.
One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it and installed a new crystal making it ready for immediate enjoyment. It is keeping very accurate time. Photos of the inside available upon request.
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.
