Stunning 1962 Solid 18ct Gold Oversize (34 mm) Rolex Precision Gents Vintage Watch

The Overview

Rolex began making larger dress watches in the very late 1930’s – the fashion for mens watches was a case size of 30 mm’s to 33 mm’s. They also made some ‘oversize’ cases and these have become amongst the most desireable Rolex from this period.

This is a simply beautiful example of the oversize solid 18ct gold Rolex Precision from 1962. The solid 18ct yellow case is in exceptional condition – the Rolex crown and serial number, whilst feint, are clearly visible on the outside caseback. The original ivory/cream Rolex signed dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standard and is wonderfully understated. The applied gold slim hour batons and original slim gold hands provide the softest contrast to the dial and are perfectly framed by the gleaming gold bezel. The very high grade Rolex signed manual wind movement is again in very good condition and have just been fully serviced. To complete this beautiful piece we’ve added a new, high quality, dark brown Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches strap with a gold plated aftermarket Rolex buckle.

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.
