This is a most elegant and very rare Rolex Precision due to its size, which at 36mm was the largest Rolex Precision made and only in very low numbers. This example is even rarer due to it’s condition, which we have no hesitation in calling immaculate. The Oversize Rolex Precision is often said to be more elegant and than a Rolex Oyster Perpetual due to its cleaner lines and its rarity.

The Dial

The off white dial is just wonderful, full of charm and in top original condition. By ‘top original’ we mean not new, but like new! The gilt ‘Alpha’ hands and centre second-hand are also in superb condition. We believe this to be the original dial which has never been restored and we have left it alone because we feel it to be too good to restore.

The Movement

This is the original 17 jewels, Calibre 1210 movement which is well known for it’s accuracy and reliability and this example here is in superb condition. It is very clean and shiny and has evidently been very well looked after, – with no signs of damage due to dampness or water ingress. It is marked Rolex Geneva Swiss, Seventeen Jewels and carries the reference number N88164. The movement has just been overhauled and serviced by ourselves and we have no hesitation in offering a 12 month written warranty, included with your fully detailed receipt. The watch winds, sets and runs perfectly and has a power reserve of 40hrs. Having just been serviced and calibrated, this watch is now running within +1o seconds per day which is superbly accurate for a mechanical watch of this age.

The Case 

The original 9ct solid yellow gold case is in immaculate condition with no scratches, dings or any other marks visible to the naked eye and inside  shows no evidence of any previous damage or repair work. Inside the case-back are London UK 9ct hallmarks which date the watch to 1959. It is marked D.S. & S.  for D Shackman & Sons – a very well known U.K.  case maker for Rolex. The press fit case-back is still an excellent fit and clips back with a satisfying click.

The Strap and Buckle

The watch comes with a new dark brown very high quality ‘croc’ leather strap and gold plated Rolex buckle. This our standard strap and the most popular for this watch, however, we are able to offer you wide choice available with no extra cost.

The Rolex presentation box shown in the photographs is included in the sale.
