Beautiful 1983 Steel & Gold Rolex Oyster Datejust ‘Quick Set’ Gents Vintage Watch

Overview

This is a beautiful example of the steel & gold Rolex Oyster Datejust ‘Quick Date Set’ from 1983. The steel and gold (fluted bezel and crown) case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear. The original Rolex signed champagne dial is untouched and again in excellent condition. The applied gold batons with outer railway line minute markers and Roman Numeral hour numbers along with the original gold hands provide the softest contrast to the dial and are perfectly framed by the gleaming gold fluted bezel. The super high grade Rolex signed calibre 3035 chronometer automatic movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this beautiful piece we’ve added a new, high quality, dark brown Hirsch and Sonning vintage watches crocodile skin strap with gold plated Hirsch buckle.

Our 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 twelve month written guarantee on the movement.
