At this price we consider this watch to be exceedingly good value, considering a new equivalent gold Rolex dress watch would retail at around £15,000 today.

From an investment point of view, there little doubt which is the better buy.
This c1950 Rolex would also make a wonderful special anniversary or birthday gift, and an excellent investment or heirloom piece.
Please note it is difficult to capture the full beauty of a vintage watch even in a good series of photographs. Needless to say, it is a much more rewarding experience to have and hold the watch and of course, to wear it with pride.
So this is a highly desirable vintage watch from horology’s most famous name and will prove an excellent investment as well as something to treasure and enjoy!
And even though prices continue to climb, we still feel that vintage gold Rolex watches from this period are significantly undervalued. And as each year goes by the world market for vintage gold Rolex is growing exponentially. And so this means prices are highly likely to remain on their steep climb trajectory.
