Today's offering showcases this beautiful solid gold example of one of Rolex's extremely fine ladies dress pieces made for the U.S. market. It showcases a distinctive octagonal solid gold case, scale textured bracelet, and matching champagne dial. It not only looks luxurious, it feels it!
Here are a few of its features:
- Distinctive and uncommon octagonal shaped case
- Beautiful original Rolex bracelet with original hand-hammered finish.
- Complementary original champagne textured dial with easy to read black topped hands and indexes
- High grade, original Rolex mechanism protected against shock in two places for greater durability
It is fully Rolex down to the dial, hands, and original winding crown.
Its 14K gold case is in good condition with one indention one the left hand side and light wear. Its dial is bright and clean, previously restored. And its high-grade, Rolex movement is very clean.
Our watchmaker has just fully disassembled the watch down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled its high-grade movement. We have also just installed a new correct crystal.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. 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.
