This is a very rare version of the ROLEX OYSTER ELEGANTE dating to 1948 and having a Viceroy style case with rare engine turned bezel measuring the usual smaller size of 29mm. x 38.5mm. in stainless steel. These watches appear larger on the wrist due to the shape of the case. In other words, they are larger than the regular boy’s size watches from the same era. This watch retains its original dimple style screw-down ROLEX winding crown. This dial is very rare, completely original, with radium Roman numerals, original blued steel pencil style hands, and gold sweep seconds. It is very rare to find a dial such as this. The manual wind ROLEX movement keeps accurate time after a recent cleaning by our ROLEX watch maker. Please do not buy this watch if you are not seeking a vintage smaller sized watch.
