Just Beautiful 1958 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date Gents Vintage Watch

The Overview

This is a beautiful example of the Rolex Oyster-Perpetual Date dating from 1958. The chunky solid steel case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear – there is a very shallow ding in the caseback. The original Rolex signed jet black dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standard and is classically Rolex and very much of its time. The raised steel arrowhead batons (shark tooth at the quarters) along with the original steel hands provide a stunning contrast to the dial and are perfectly framed by gleaming steel case. The Rolex signed screw down crown is working perfectly. The very high grade Rolex signed automatic is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this delicious watch we’ve added a new, high quality, black Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches crocodile skin strap with steel aftermarket Rolex buckle.

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.
