In vintage times, 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 that served the needs of men in technical, sporting, and racing fields.
It is 34mm without the crown - the same diameter as a mens Rolex Date model and two millimeters smaller than a Datejust.
It really has a timeless classic look. But what is most striking about the watch is its incredible restored condition.
It has all of its original parts and 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 gorgeous mint. Despite what the photos seem to suggest, all of its original Rolex markings are still fully intact and clear. Since the photos were taken the back has been snapped on exactly straight.
Its dial has been meticulously restored - 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 and is keeping time.
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 and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
Your watch is important to us, and we will take care of it for its lifetime. We provide the best after sale care in the business with an extremely experienced team of four Master Watchmakers all of whom each have over thirty-five years of experience and a large number of parts. One used to be the watchmaker for an authorized Rolex dealership and was given special training by Rolex at their Beverly Hills Service Center.
Don't miss the opportunity to own the perfect complement to your sporty Datejust, Sub, GMT, or Daytona.
