(The spots on the dial were specs of dust which have now been removed). A rare red sweep seconds hand contrasts an even rarer black dial. Originally an officer's watch and as such, is remarkable for the fact that it is in pristine condition. It is all correctly signed and is. The strap is an aftermarket leather one in very good condition.
My Father was a doctor and only collected rare, top-of-the-range watches, in pristine condition. He only wore this one on special occasions and it was one of his favourite watches. The condition reflects the utmost care he took with his timepieces and this one has an unmarked dial with a case and bracelet which are also both in pristine condition. All in all, this watch is highly collectible and exceedingly rare.The size is "mid" and would suit a man or woman. Mechanically, it has the most exquisite'winding action' that only Rolex could engineer.
The famous Rolex'tick' is just perfect too and choreographs its own special ticking opera as the seconds hand dances around the dial. How the original Rolex inventors must have congratulated themselves when they first engineered it! And how you too will you congratulate yourself in the future when this watch increases in value, year by year.
Case length inc lugs: 34mm. Watches of this calibre rarely get offered for sale and make a first rate investment.
This is due to the fact that not only is this collectible because of its'military interest', but also for collectors of art deco artefacts, plus Rolex watch collectors too. Due to its condition, this timepiece will make a perfect gift or just treat yourself! If you have any questions, please ask.
