In the 1950's while making many more sporting Oyster style watches, Rolex crafted special dress wristwatches to meet the needs of their female clientele.
The uncommon and beautiful ladies wristwatch featured in today's offering is a wonderful example of one of those pieces.
Featuring a very classic case 18K white gold with special "crown" style lugs, suggestive of Rolex's coronet symbol, a silver dial, and a fine Rolex mechanism, this gem fits in well on the wrist of an attorney, executive businesswoman, or any woman desiring to wear a true world-class wristwatch.
Here are a few of this watch's features:
- Rare case with glamorous lug decoration, embodying classic 1950's vintage style
- Solid 18K white gold case - unlike most Rolex's dress style watches for sale in the United States that were cased in 14K gold in the U.S. this is a true all-Swiss Rolex creation.
- High quality Rolex Precision mechanism with dual shock absorbers
- Silver dial with distinctive markers
This special Rolex is in pleasing condition - it is fully Rolex down to the dial and hands. Its elegant and somewhat avant-garde white gold case is in very good condition with fairly mild wear. It has not been recently polished and it still retains its clear Rolex Coronet on the outside of the back and its serial number, which often are no longer visible.
Its silver dial has been previously restored in vintage times. And its high-grade Rolex movement is keeping accurate time. Photos of the inside available upon request.
One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it. For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new black cord band specially designed to replicate the original 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 custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
Modern Rolexes can't match the charm and romance of this unusual vintage Rolex.
