1965 Rolex Precision Pre-Cellini Vintage Ladies Watch, Ref. 3408 - Stainless Steel


Item No. 9001

Today's offering showcases this beautiful ladies Certified Pre-Owned Rolex pre-Cellini watch.

Both a tasteful fashion statement and a precision wristwatch, it features an elegant stainless steel case, matte Tiffany blue or Glacier blue dial with Rolex coronet, and well-executed mechanism.

But what's most striking about it is its incredible condition. It has just finished a true expertly done restoration.

It has 100% of its original Rolex parts and presents in gorgeous condition - a 9.7 out of 10. Our photos couldn't capture the perfection of its condition.

The case presents as mint and retains all of its original Rolex stamping on the back. The dial has been expertly refinished - the printing could pass as Rolex factory done to the naked eye. And the fine handwound movement is very clean.

Note that the dial came out looking just a brighter under the photography lights than it does in person.

It has just been freshly overhauled by a Master Watchmaker. Amazingly after fifty seven years it continues to run extremely strong and true, keeping time on par with a brand new Rolex in our testing position.

For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new navy blue leather strap with quick-release pins 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 attesting to its performance.

A more than five and a half decade old Rolex that looks like new!
