Just Beautiful 1930’s Solid 18ct White Gold & Diamond Swinging Lug Ladies Cocktail Watch

The Overview

This is a simply beautiful example of a ladies Rolex from the 1930’s. The solid 18ct white gold and diamond case is in very good condition with only some minor signs of wear – it’s also the highly sought after ‘swinging Lug’ style which means the lugs or shoulders are on hinges. The case has 28 diamonds and along with the delicately chased case sides is simply magnificent. The original steel Rolex signed dial has been professionally re-fnished 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 very grade manual wind movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. We’ve put a new, black Hirsch calf skin strap with a steel buckle on the watch which provides a lovely and secure fit.

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.
