Here we have the most elegant 9ct Rolex Precision dress watch from 1950 with the classical gold numerals over silver-white dial. Note the watch is of a mid size for the period at 31mm diameter not including the crown.

The high grade 15 jewels movement has been fully overhauled and serviced and is running strongly and accurately. To finish the watch we have added a new, very high quality black ‘croc’ leather strap. This 1950 watch was made shortly after the introduction of the new Rolex Shock-Resisting movement as promoted on the dial.

The Dial

This is the classic gold over silver white early 1950′s ‘1-11′ classical dial with the Rolex crown at 12 o’clock and is signed ROLEX and Shock-Resisting. This is the original dial which has been freshly restored which has been completed to the very highest standard. The dial is very clear and easy to read in low light. The lens is very clean and unmarked. It is a beautifully understated and elegant dial in the imperial style with blued steel hands and looks just fabulous.

The Case

The professionally polished solid 9ct gold case is in excellent condition and has only minimal signs of wear – the press fit flat 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. The case was made in England by Dennison for Rolex. The inside of the case-back is signed A.L.D. for Dennison and Made in England for Rolex with the Dennison case reference 12857 and the correct 9ct gold hallmarks and the Rolex serial number 624634 dating the watch to 1950.

The Movement

The original high grade Cal.710 ’15 Rubis’ Rolex signed, hand wound movement is in spectacularly good condition being completely untarnished and obviously well cared for. This movement has just been serviced by our Master Watchmaker and it winds, sets and runs beautifully. It is twice signed ‘ROLEX’ and ‘SWISS MADE’ and carries the reference number 30275. These movements are very accurate, strong and reliable and seem to last forever! It is keeping excellent time and with regular servicing, say every 3 to 4 years we would fully expect this movement to run reliably for many years to come!

The Strap & Buckle

A new high quality, new brown ‘croc’ leather strap is fitted to the watch with a gold plated Rolex buckle.
