Rolex

It is not quite so well known that Rolex was actually founded in the UK in London in 1905 and it was not until 1919 that the company transferred its base of operations to Geneva, Switzerland. It is also a misconception that the world of luxury watches is a gentlemans one, as the first recorded wristwatch was actually designed for a lady. In June 1810, Abraham-Louis Breguet made a watch for Caroline Murat, Queen of Naples. For many decades, women have proudly worn Rolex watches and have been integral to the brand’s success.

Description

Here we have a beautiful example of a fully restored ladies cocktail watch with a two tone dial in 9ct pink gold from 1923. The watch has a superb condition case, very clean fully overhauled and serviced movement and mint condition two-tone dial. The condition of the bracelet, watch case and movement indicates this watch has only ever seen very occasional and careful use.

The Dial

The fully restored two tone gold and grey dial is simply beautiful. This dial carries Breguet style Standard Arabic numerals which are swept by black ‘needle’ hands. This example also carries a minute railtrack around the outer edge of the dial and is simply signed ‘Rolex’ and with Swiss Made at the very bottom.

The lens has also been replaced as part of the full restoration.

This is the original dial which has been restored to the highest standards by our dial restorers, considered to be the best in the UK.

The Movement

The high-grade, 15 Jewel, hand-wound movement is in incredibly clean and sparkling condition and has just been fully overhauled and serviced by our expert vintage Rolex specialist watchmaker.

The example here is running perfectly, having been calibrated to run consistently within plus or minus 9 seconds per day! This is truly outstanding for any mechanical watch and it is no exaggeration – we have checked the test results on our electronic watch timegrapher.

The movement is signed ‘Rolex Patent’, ‘Swiss’ and ‘15 Jewels’. This particular movement with regular servicing, say every 3 to 4 years, we would fully expect this watch to continue to run very happily for another 50+ years! We are therefore totally confident in offering this watch with our 12 months written warranty*.

*Please note – our 12 months’ warranty is only applicable if the list price is paid.

The Case

The original 9ct pink gold case measures 24mm, excluding the correct unsigned crown. This makes this a small-sized ladies watch by modern standards. The crown is correct for this watch and is unsigned, as was usual at the time. The watch case has a hinged press fit case back to reveal the movement, this fits perfectly back in with a satisfying ‘pop’.

On the inside of the double hinged case back the signatures are clear ‘Rolex’ and ‘R.W.C.Ltd’ along with ‘7 Worlds Records’, ‘Gold Medal’ and ‘Geneva-Suisse’ the correct Swiss 9ct hallmarks and also the model reference number 4070.

The watch case is in tip-top condition with no scratches, dings or dimples visible to the naked eye and the integrity of the case and case hinges is first class. This is all quite amazing, considering this watch is approaching 100 years old.

As always our standard advice applies, vintage watches should be kept clean and dry at all times.

The Bracelet

The watch is fitted with its original 9ct Yellow Gold Rolex bracelet. The bracelet is, as expected, superbly made and quite weighty and substantial. It is also in wonderful condition. While the links do not stretch, they are just flexible enough to hug the wrist beautifully with no gaps or unevenness in any of the links.

Please note – this bracelet will expand to make it a perfect fit for a wrist size of between 14.6cm or 5¾”– 15.2cm or 6″.

Box and Papers

Although there are no original papers with this watch, the reference numbers, markings, signatures and hallmarks are all correct, dating this watch to 1923.
