Here we have a simply stunning, gentleman’s 9ct vintage Rolex Precision ‘Coin Edge’ gentleman’s dress watch from 1960. Its 34mm Coin Edge case and 12 Arabic numerals white dial make this is a rare and highly sought after watch, especially so when found in this condition. This watch has lead a charmed life and you will be unlikely to find a better example!
The 1 – 12 Arabic white dial is the most popular and the one we are asked to find most often. And this is as fine an example as you will find. It is the original dial which has been restored to the very highest standards by our dial restorer who is considered one of the best in the UK.
The watch carries its original high grade Rolex calibre 1215 Precision movement which as can be seen is in sparkling clean condition. This movement has been completely disassembled, cleaned, inspected and rebuilt using original Rolex parts only where required by our vintage Rolex specialist watchmaker. His work is amazing and when final tested on 14th August this watch was calibrated and running within 3 seconds per day, which is truly exceptional for any vintage watch of this age! The movement is all correctly signed ‘MONTRES ROLEX SA GENEVA’, ‘SWISS’, and ‘SEVENTEEN 17 JEWELS’ and the Calibre number 1215. These movements are strong, accurate and very reliable making the watch is perfectly suited for regular everyday use. This particular movement is in A1 condition and with regular servicing, every 3 to 4 years we would fully expect this watch to run happily for many more decades to come! We are pleased to offer a 12 months warranty on this watch movement*.
*Please note our 12 months warranty is only applicable if the list price is paid.
The case, case-back and ‘Coin Edge’ bezel are all in superb condition with no marks or scratches visible to the naked eye. The watch case has been lovingly cared for and so the case has simply required a careful clean and gentle polish to bring it back to its current ‘like new’ condition. The outside of the case back is unmarked and polished and has never been engraved. The case measures 34mm in diameter not including the original crown and so this is a large sized Rolex Precision.
Inside the case back the markings are all correct for a Rolex case made by one of their two U.K. case-makers D.S.&S (David Shackman & Sons Ltd) along with reference number 11824. The case-back also carries London 9ct hallmarks which date this watch to 1960.
The Strap and Buckle
The strap fitted is a new very high quality black ‘croc’ leather strap. The buckle a Rolex gold plated. Please note if a different colour or style of strap is preferred, please let us know and we will do our best to oblige free of charge.
The Box and Papers
Although there are no original papers with this watch, all the numbers and markings on the watch are all correct, dating the watch to 1960. A detailed written receipt, with a 12 months warranty* and a separate insurance valuation for the replacement value will be provided at the time of sale. A matching Rolex presentation box will be included in the sale.
This is a truly first class example of a 1960 vintage Rolex Precision ‘Coin Edge’ which is ready to wear and completely practical for every day use. And if treated with care it will make an excellent investment or heirloom piece. Even though vintage gold Rolex prices have risen markedly recently, we feel good examples such as this are still undervalued. And as each year goes by and the world market for vintage gold Rolex watches continues to expand, prices will climb ever higher.
This is a highly collectable vintage gold watch from horology’s most famous name which will provide an excellent financial investment as well as something to treasure and enjoy!
