This is an extremely rare 1940s French-cased Rolex Perpetual in solid-rose-gold. The case is completely correct and unsigned as cases were in the WW2 era due to France’s rule of not allowing any finished gold cases to enter the country. This is why we see the odd and rare French hallmarked cases from this era. The rose-gold case with stepped bezel is a ref. 9353 and is in very fine condition overall, with only the slightest ding in the bezel. This 34mm case is a non-Oyster snap back, making it even a rarer bird. Notice the dial is just signed “ROLEX PERPETUAL” to reflect upon the non-Oyster case. This dial is completely original, never restored in any way, and retains the original triangular rose arrow markers and Dauphine pitched hands. The A296 bubbleback movement is marked 15375 and F64052 and has just been cleaned and overhauled.
