This is a beautiful example of the ladies Mid-Size Rolex ‘Super’ Oyster Royal dating from 1952. The solid steel case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear. The original Rolex signed crisp ivory/cream dial is untouched – we usually refinish dials from this age as they age very badly but this one has aged beautifully. The ivory/cream patina along with the applied gold batons and original hands are perfectly framed by the gleaming steel bezel. The original Rolex signed manual wind movement is again in very good condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this lovely piece we’ve added a new, high quality, dark brown 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 12 month written guarantee on the movement, which is long enough for you to assess the working order.
