Beautiful 1952 Mid-Size Rolex Oyster Speedking Ladies Vintage Watch

The Overview

This is a simply beautiful example of the mid-size Rolex Oyster Speedking dating from 1952. The original Rolex signed ivory/cream dial has been professionally refinished and is very much of its time. The alternating triangular hour batons and Arabic hour numbers along with the original mushroom hands are very much in the late art-deco style. The solid steel case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear – the case back teeth show no signs of incorrect tool use. The very high grade, Rolex signed 17 jewel manual wind movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this watch we’ve added a new, super high quality light brown Hirsch Regent alligator skin strap with steel buckle.

My asking price is below the value for a watch of this condition and rarity, particularly with the continual rise in value of vintage watches of this high quality. In view of the high grade Swiss movement, I will include a three month written guarantee on the movement, which is long enough for you to assess the working order. Also, I offer a full refund if you are not entirely happy, as long as the watch is returned within seven days for the UK, twelve days if overseas, in the same condition.
