Super Rare 1963 Oversize (34 mm’s) Rolex Oyster Airking Super Precision Gents Vintage Watch

Overview

This is a beautiful example of the iconic Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-king Super Precision dating from 1963. Very rarely it’s the oversize model meaning it’s 34 mm’s across the case excluding the crown rather than the standard 33 mm’s; the lug width is also 20 mm’s rather than the standard 19 mm’s. The solid steel case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear. The original very slightly off-white Rolex signed dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standard and is classically Rolex. The applied steel batons and hands provide the softest contrast to the dial and blend perfectly with the gleaming case. The very high grade Rolex signed automatic movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this beautiful watch we’ve added a new, super high quality, Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches black ‘London’ alligator strap with steel buckle (these retail at £195.00).

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.
