Today's offering showcases this rare and exquisite Rolex creation. It is fully Rolex. It is like the watch's that were 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."
Bejeweled with fifty-nine (59) diamonds, the 18K white Rolex gold case and diamond tennis bracelet is absolutely stunning! Our photos couldn't begin to do it justice.
Showcasing a beautiful design with large full diamond bezel and six diamonds servicing as the focal points, 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 wonderful Rolex in pleasing condition. It fully Rolex down to the dial, hands and winding crown. It has a beautiful fancy bracelet.
Its case is in excellent condition. Its silver dial has meticulously restored by one of the leading dial experts in North America.
One of our Master Watchmakers, who used to be the watchmaker for an authorized Rolex dealer and was given special training by Rolex at their Beverly Hills Service Center to be an authorized Rolex watchmaker (for many years now Rolex does not "certify" they only "train"), has fully serviced the watch which consists of fully disassembling the movement, carefully inspecting each part, replacing any overly worn components with genuine Rolex parts, installing a new mainspring, reassembling and lubricating the movement, and extensive timing, testing and regulation (a $595 value).
For the finishing touch we have carefully detailed it 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 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.
