Just Beautiful 1940’s Solid 9ct Gold Oversize (34 mm’s) Bull Horn Lug Rolex Precision Sub-Second Gents Vintage Watch

The Overview

This is a beautiful example of the solid 9ct gold Rolex Precision Sub-Second dating from the 1940’s. Very rarely, it’s the oversize version with the super desireable ‘Bull Horn’ lug case. The solid 9ct gold case is in near flawless condition with only the most minimal signs of wear. The original Rolex signed ivory/cream sub-second (as against centre second) dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standards and is just stunning. The raised gilt (yellow) spearhead hour batons with Arabic numbers at the quarters along with the original gilt hands and sub-second dial create a classically late art-deco look. The very high grade Rolex signed ‘Precision’ manual wind movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this piece we’ve added a new, high quality, dark brown crocodile skin with an aftermarket gold plated 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.
