Stunning 1961 Ladies Rolex Oyster Ladydate Ladies Vintage Watch

The Overview

This is a beautiful example of the ladies Rolex Oyster Perpetual ‘Ladydate’ dating from 1961. The steel case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear – the rare ‘Thunderbird’ bezel is very defined. The original Rolex signed steel pearlescent dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standard and is just beautiful. The applied steel arrowhead hour batons along with the original steel hands (blued steel second hand) provide the softest contrast to the dial and are perfectly framed by the Thunderbird bezel. The original Rolex signed and very high grade perpetual (automatic) movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker – very rarely it’s the butterfly movement. To complete this piece we’ve added a new, high quality, black Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches crocodile skin strap with steel Hirsch 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.
