We are working with a UK based collector who has asked us to market a selection of his watches. As part of the offer each watch has had a full service and refurbishment by the UK’s leading watchmaker, Steven Hale Watch Restoration. Each watch will come with a 2 year guarantee from Steve Hale and a lifetime guarantee on the authenticity by Sonning Vintage Watches.
This is a beautiful example of the rectangular cased Rolex from the 1940’s. The solid steel case is in excellent condition with only the most minor signs of wear – very rarely the model reference and serial number are clearly visible on the caseback. The original Rolex signed slightly off-white dial has been professionally refinished to the highest standard and is classically late art-deco. There are some minor marks on the dial and I’d be happy to send a Whatsapp video on the wrist as they’re very difficult to see with the naked eye. The high grade Rolex signed manual wind movement is again in excellent condition and has just been serviced by SHWR. To complete this lovely piece we’ve added a new black Hirsch croco-grain strap with steel Hirsch buckle.
Whilst this is a robust watch we wouldn’t recommend it for everyday wear.
