Stunning 1952 Oversize (35 mm’s excluding the crown) Steel Rolex Precision Gents Vintage Watch

The Overview

Rolex began making dress or day watches in the very late 1930’s/early 1940’s. Most were 30 mm’s across the case with some 33 and 34 mm’s and very few 35 mm’s. The vast majority were also in gold or steel and gold. Very rarely they made the oversize case in steel which have become extremely desireable.

This oversize steel Precision has the serial number of 716642 on the outside case back which dates in 1952. The oversize steel case with a beautifully rounded back is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear. The original Rolex signed crisp white dial has been professionally refinished to highest possible standards and classically Rolex. The raised steel hour batons, steel hands and sub-second create a stunning piece (please see picture 5 for the colour of the dial and batons and hands). The very high grade Rolex signed ‘Precision’ manual wind movement is again in very good condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this beautiful watch we’ve added a new, high quality, Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches black crocodile skin strap with steel buckle.

Watches of this quality and in this condition are extremely rare and highly sought after – if history is any judge they 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 Conclusion

This is a beautiful example of a watch from one of horology’s most famous names and will, if history is any judge, provide an excellent financial investment as well as a possession to treasure and enjoy.
