Collector Condition 1958/1960 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Full Set Gents Vintage Watch. This is a simply magnificent example of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual dating from 1958 to 1960. The solid steel case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear. The original Rolex signed steel dial is untouched we find the vast majority of dials from this age have heavy patina and need refinishing but this one has aged beautifully. The applied steel arrowhead hour batons along with the original steel dauphine hands create the softest contrast the dial and are perfectly framed by the gleaming engine turned bezel.
The very high grade Rolex signed automatic Butterfly (so called due to the antenna style cut outs in the rotor) is again in very good condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. We also have what we believe is the original Rolex Oyster Rivet bracelet which is in excellent condition and a great size. Incredibly rarely we also have. The original Rolex guarantee dated 1960.
The original Rolex Chronometer certificate dated 1959. The original Rolex Swimpruf tag with the correct details handwritten on the back. What we believe is the original Rolex box. Any provenance from this period is extremely rare but to find everything is extremely rare.
My asking price is below the value for a watch of this condition and rarity, particularly with the continual rise in value of vintage watches of this high quality. In view of the high grade Swiss movement, I will include a twelve month written guarantee on the movement. The serial number, case number and movement number all match across the paperwork.The case measures 34mm across, excluding the Rolex crown and 40mm long including the lugs. The inside case is signed Montres Rolex SA Geneva Switzerland, Patented Stainless Steel and the case number is 6569. The age reference is 11.9158 dating it to 1958. The dial is signed Rolex Oyster Perpetual, Officially Certified Chronometer and Swiss.
The movement is signed Montres Rolex SA Geneva Swiss, Adjusted 5 Positions and Temperature, Twenty Five 25 Jewels and the calibre is 1030. The movement number, that also matches the Chronometer Certificate, is N89325.
