Beautiful 1955 Rolex Oyster Manual Wind Unisex (33 mm) Vintage Watch

The Overview

This is a beautiful example of the iconic Rolex Oyster dating from 1955. The full size steel case, 33 mm across excluding the Rolex signed winding crown, was originally a men’s size but it’s equally popular for ladies. The steel case is in excellent condition with only the minimal signs of wear. The original Rolex signed black dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standard and it’s classically late art-deco. The raised gold hour batons, enlarged at the quarters along with the original gold hands create a lovely contrast to the dial. The high grade Rolex signed manual wind movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this lovely piece we’ve added a new, high quality, black Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches crocodile skin strap with steel aftermarket Rolex 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.

The Conclusion

This is a rare and highly collectable vintage watch from one of horology’s most famous names and will, if history is any judge, provide an excellent financial investment as well as a possession to treasure and enjoy. I will provide an insurance valuation in excess of my asking price. Please appreciate the difficulty of photographing this piece, it looks even better in real life.
