Stunning 1972 Full Size (33 mm) Solid 9ct Gold Rolex Precision Gents Vintage Watch

The Overview

This is a beautiful example of the full size solid 9ct gold Rolex Precision dating from 1972. The solid 9ct gold case is in excellent condition with only the most minor signs of wear. The original slightly off-white Rolex signed dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standards. The applied gold Arabic numbers along with the original gold hands create a soft contrast the dial and are perfectly framed by the gleaming gold bezel – please see picture 6 for the colour of the dial and numbers/hands. The high grade Rolex signed manual wind movement is in exceptional condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this piece we’ve added a new, high quality, dark brown Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches crocodile skin strap with gold plated Hirsch 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.
