Here we have a most elegant 9ct Rolex Precision dress watch from 1955 with the 3, 6, 9 classic gold numerals and indices on a Silver-White dial. A notable feature of this watch is its fancy and ornate sculpted lugs.
Please note – although this style and size of the watch, at 31mm diameter, was a considered typical sized gentleman’s watch in the 1950s, it is perhaps more suited as a ladies watch today.
This is the classic Gold on White 1950s ‘3, 6, 9′ dial with the Rolex crown at 12 o’clock and is signed ROLEX and Precision. This is the original dial which has been restored to the very highest standard. The dial is very clean and easy to read even in low light. This is a beautifully understated and elegant dial in the ‘Explorer’ style with original restored gilt ‘leaf’ hands and a blued steel seconds hand, both of which look simply fabulous.
The professionally polished solid 9ct yellow gold case is in excellent condition having been very well cared for and shows only the faintest signs of wear, visible to the naked eye. The press fit case-back clicks into place very satisfyingly and has never been inscribed. The case measures just over 31mm in diameter, excluding the Rolex crown and 38mm, including the lugs. This makes the watch better suited for a lady given the modern trend for outsized watches. The case was made in England by Dennison for Rolex and the inside of the case-back is signed Dennison and ‘Made in England for Rolex’ with the reference number 12857 and the serial number 881886. The watch also carries the correct Birmingham UK 9ct gold hallmarks, dating this watch to 1955.
The high grade Cal.1210 manual wind movement is incredibly clean and also in incredibly good condition. It has just been overhauled and serviced by our expert watchmaker and is running perfectly. These Rolex Cal.1210 movements are very highly regarded for their accuracy and reliability and this movement has been calibrated to run arrow straight within + 8 seconds per day! This is no exaggeration – we have checked the test results on our electronic watch timer. This movement also has a really excellent 58-hour power reserve when fully wound.
The movement is signed Rolex SA, Geneva Swiss and Seventeen Jewels and marked with the Calibre 1210. In addition, it carries the reference number N633356. This particular movement is in superb condition and with regular servicing, say every 2-3 years, we would fully expect this watch to run quite happily for another 60+ years! We are therefore very confident in offering this watch with a 12-month written warranty*.
*Please note – our 12 months’ warranty is only included if the list price is paid.
Strap and Buckle
A high quality, new Black Lizard strap is fitted with a gold plated Rolex buckle. If a different colour or style of strap is preferred, we will do our best to provide this at no extra charge.
Box and Papers
Although there is no original paperwork with this watch, the reference numbers, markings, signatures and hallmarks are all correct, dating the watch to 1955. A detailed Particulars document will be included with the receipt, along with our 12 months’ warranty*. A separate insurance valuation for the replacement value of this watch will also be provided at the time of sale along with our unique ‘Lifetime Authenticity Guarantee’ which states: “If this watch proves to be anything less than totally authentic, or not as described, Vintage Gold Watches of London will offer you a full refund at any time”.

A word on our prices – We always try our hardest to acquire the very highest quality watches we can find, before then restoring them to the highest possible standards. We then offer these at the fairest prices we can, taking into account our pre and post sales care and service. This approach means we will never be the cheapest, but nor will we be the most expensive. Indeed there are some well-known stores in West London which are highly successful, charging between two to three times the price you see here. We therefore consider our prices to be fair, given the quality of watches we have to offer.
