Our Ladies’ feature vintage wristwatch to buy…click pic above.
Look at this ultra rare (first we have seen in over 20 years) ART DECO Ladies’ ROLEX COCKTAIL WATCH having solid 18k. pink gold spiraling lugs with stainless steel “mirror-like” bezel and steel snap back measuring 19.6×42.5mm. (lug to lug)! The lugs curve and stretch in such a wonderful Art Deco swirl! One can imagine a moonlit night in the 30’s dancing under the stars… while gazing at this Deco treasure wishing time would stand still! Time really has stood still in relation to the condition of this rarity…the solid, pink gold lugs and steel case glisten and the matching, salmon coloured, two tone dial with reflective Roman numeral register is fabulous…. in my ultra-close up pics normal ageing shows…in “real life” on your wrist, the dial looks stunning…with only a gentle vintage glow. Note the original blued steel hands and sub-seconds. If we were to follow ROLEX serial number records…this watch would be produced in 1927. But these records are not completely accurate going back that far…still it is quite possible that was its’ production date! The case back is elegantly inscribed by the owner with the date “1937” adding to the nostalgia. We have installed a simple cotton cord band that sets off the look…as the original cord band had rotted…. this one is almost identical! The band can be made (if needed) smaller, easily, at any jeweler. The manual winding ROLEX movement was fully overhauled and cleaned at our watchmakers…keeping accurate time…ready to tick away for another 70 years! Adding to the rarity of this watch… the cranberry coloured vintage ladies’ ROLEX box with silk lining… (very valuable and rare on its’ own) truly sets off this Art Deco delight! This is the best looking ROLEX cocktail watch we have ever seen.
