Stunning Oversize 1956 Solid 9ct Gold Rolex Precision Gents Vintage Watch

Overview

This is a simply beautiful example of the oversize solid 9ct yellow gold Rolex Precision. The oversize solid 9ct gold case is in virtually flawless condition. The original ivory/cream dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standards and is classically Rolex. The applied gold hour batons with Arabic numbers at the quarters along with the gold dauphine hands provide the softest contrast and blend perfectly with the gleaming case. The original high grade Rolex signed manual wind movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this watch we’ve put a new, high quality, dark brown crocodile skin strap with gold plated buckle – we hold the Hirsch franchise and can supply any colour or material required.

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 12 month written guarantee on the movement.

The Case

The oversize solid 9ct gold case is in virtually flawless condition. The case measures 34mm across, excluding the winding crown and 42mm including the lugs. The inside case is signed ‘Dennison Made in England for Rolex’, ‘ALD’ (ALD stands for Dennison who were an English casemaker who made cases for most of the major brands including Omega, Jaeger, Rolex & Breitling) and the case numbers are ‘12847 & 51734’. It also the appropriate hallmarks for solid 9ct gold – the Assay Office is the anchor of Birmingham with the letter of ‘G’ dating it to 1956.
