Eatons Quarter Century club Rolex

Description

 

SOLD!

Look at this 33mm., solid 14k. gold, rare, Eaton’s Quarter century club ROLEX dating to 1967! These watches were given to employees of the Canadian Department store “EATONS” for 25 years of service and were contracted by ROLEX to produce for EATONS. This particular model uses the (rarest) reference 1011 solid gold ROLEX OYSTER case with inwardly curved BOMBE lugs… glistening condition… no dings or scratches, along with the elaborate inscription on the rear. These were amongst the only ROLEX watches produced and allowed by ROLEX to appear without the name ROLEX on the dial. This watch also retains the original ROLEX winding crown. The movement is the original caliber 1520…(just fully cleaned and serviced keeping excellent time) making it one of the last quarter century watches ever produced. This movement is the same desirable and rugged “engine” as used by the ROLEX SUBMARINER in the 1960’s. Normally, the earlier caliber 1030 is seen in these watches. This dial with applied letters is pristine…. one of the finest we have encountered…original Dauphine style hands and sweep seconds. This watch was fully serviced and overhauled and will provide many years of reliable timekeeping. These 1/4 century ROLEX are true investment watches that will only increase in value!
