This is a beautiful example of the super rare oversize Rolex Oyster Perpetual dating from 1961. Most Oysters of this age are 33 mm’s across excluding the crown and this one’s 35 mm’s across excluding the crown… This is only the 3rd of 4th example we’ve had in the last 8 years.
The Oversize steel case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear. The original Rolex Signed steel pearlescent dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standard and is classically Rolex. The 3/4 applied steel batons with double steel batons at the quarters along with the original steel dauphine hands (blued steel second hands – there is some minor pitting on the steel hands but we’ve kept them to keep the originality. We are able to supply new replacements and supply the existing ones with the watch). The very high grade Rolex signed automatic movement is in very good condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this piece we’ve added a new, super quality, black Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches alligator skin strap with steel Hirsch buckle.
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.
