Just Beautiful 1920’s Solid 18ct White Gold & Diamond Ladies Vintage Rolex Cocktail Watch

The Overview

This is a simply beautiful example of a ladies Rolex from the late 1920’s. The solid 18ct white gold and diamond case is in excellent condition with only some minor signs of wear. The solid 18ct white gold case has 48 diamonds and along with the delicately chased case sides is simply magnificent. The original steel guilloche (patterned) Rolex signed dial has been professionally re-finished to the highest possible standard and is in excellent condition. The Arabic numbers and outer minute markings along with the original blued steel hands are classically art-deco. The original Rolex signed high grade manual wind movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. The watch comes with a new period style black silk ribbon strap with steel clasp. We also have a period box the watch came in which is overall excellent condition.

Please note, a watch of this age will be 1 to 2 minutes out per day.

Watches of this quality and in this condition are extremely rare and highly sought after – there are only 1 or 2 for sale in the world at any one time. A similar watch in the Burlington Arcade would be comfortably in the £5,000 – £7,000 bracket.

As mentioned, it has just been serviced by my watchmaker and, in view of the high-grade Swiss movement, I will include a 3 month guarantee on the movement which is long enough for you to assess the working order.
