Exceptional 1979 Solid 14ct Gold Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date with Sigma Dial Gents Vintage Watch

The Overview

This is a simply beautiful example of the solid 14ct gold Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date dating from 1979. The solid 14ct gold case is in excellent condition with only the most minor signs of wear. The original and very rare Rolex ‘Sigma’ (solid gold batons rather than steel) signed champagne dial is untouched and in near flawless condition. The applied solid gold batons and original gold hands flow into the dial and are perfectly framed by the solid gold fluted bezel. The very high grade Rolex signed automatic movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this beautiful piece we’ve added a new, super high quality, Hirsch ‘Regent’ dark brown alligator skin strap with an aftermarket gold plated Rolex buckle.

Watches of this quality and in this condition are extremely rare and highly sought after – if history is any judge they will only increase in value.

As mentioned, it has just been serviced by my watchmaker and, in view of the high-grade Swiss movement, I will include a 12 month 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. Subject to your location I’ll happily show the watch.
