Stunning 1949 Solid 9ct Gold Mid-Size Rolex Precision Sub-Second Ladies Vintage Watch

The Overview

This is a beautiful example of the mid-size Rolex Precision in solid 9ct gold from 1949. The solid yellow gold case is in excellent condition with only a minor ding on the outside caseback. The original Rolex signed steel dial with raised gold Arabic numbers is untouched – we usually refinish dials from this age due to heavy patina but this one’s aged beautifully (please bear in mind we use macro photography and to the naked eye it looks even better). The original and high grade Rolex signed manual wind movement is again in very good condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this lovely watch we’ve added a new, high quality, dark brown Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches crocodile skin strap with a gold plated Hirsch buckle.

This is a beautiful example of this iconic watch and if history is any judge it will only increase in value.

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.

The Case

The case measures 30 mm’s across, excluding the Rolex signed winding crown and 37 mm’s long including the lugs. The inside case is signed ‘Dennison Made in England (Dennison were an English casemaker who worked with most of the major Swiss brands including Rolex, Omega, Jaeger and Breitling), ALD and the case numbers are ‘12325 & 269555’. It also has the appropriate hallmarks for solid 9ct gold – the Assay Office is Birmingham and the age letter is ‘Z’ dating it to 1949.
