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 and the Rolex crown is clearly visible on the outside case (these are often worn off with wear and/or excessive polishing. 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) tear drop 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. Very rarely, we have a genuine black Rolex crocodile skin and a genuine gold Rolex buckle (we believe this is original to the watch due to the shape of the Rolex crown). The strap is clearly newer and in excellent condition.

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 case measures 34 mm’s across, excluding the extremely rare original ‘thimble’ crown and 40 mm’s long including the bull horn lugs. The Rolex crown is beautifully defined on the outside caseback and the inside caseback is signed Rolex Geneva Swiss’, ‘RWC Ltd’ and the case numbers are ‘150 4636 538217’. It also the appropriate hallmarks for solid 9ct gold.
