Seller: sonningvintagewatchesltd (759) 100%, Location: Reading, Berkshire, Ships to: Europe, US, JP, CA, AU, Item: 173814656183 Sonning Vintage Watches Collector Condition 1940’s Solid 9ct Gold Oversize (34mm) Rolex Precision Gents Vintage WatchThe Overview This is a magnificent example of the Rolex Precision 4344 dating from the 1940’s. The solid 9ct gold Rolex signed case is in excellent condition with only the most minor signs of wear. The case style is extremely rare and has stunted bull horn style lugs with a fixed bar (rather than spring pins) for the strap. The original ivory/white Rolex signed dial is untouched and in excellent condition – we have to refinish 95% of dials from this age due to the heavy patina but the occasional one, like this example, ages beautifully. The applied diamond shaped gold hour batons along with the gold dauphine hands and subsidiary second dial (with gold hand) creates a classically late art-deco look. The very high grade Rolex signed ‘Precision’ manual wind movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this piece we’ve added a new, high quality, dark brown lizard skin strap with gold plated buckle. Watches of this quality and in this condition are extremely rare and highly sought after – if history is any judge they will only increase in value. As mentioned, it has just been serviced by my watchmaker and, in view of the high-grade Swiss movement, I will include a 12 month guarantee on the movement. The Case The solid 9ct gold Rolex signed case is in excellent condition with only the most minor signs of wear. The case style is extremely rare and has stunted bull horn style lugs with a fixed bar (rather than spring pins) for the strap. The case measures 34mm across, excluding the winding crown and 39mm long including the lugs. The inside case is signed ‘Rolex Geneva Swiss’, ‘RWC Ltd’ and the case references are ‘4344 091’. It also has the appropriate hallmarks for solid 9ct gold. The Dial The original ivory/white Rolex signed dial is untouched and in excellent condition – we have to refinish 95% of dials from this age due to the heavy patina but the occasional one, like this example, ages beautifully. The applied diamond shaped gold hour batons along with the gold dauphine hands and subsidiary second dial (with gold hand) creates a classically late art-deco look. The dial is signed ‘Rolex’, ‘Precision’ and ‘Swiss’. The Movement The very high grade Rolex signed ‘Precision’ manual wind movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. The movement is signed ‘Rolex Precision’, ‘Swiss Made’, ’17 Rubis’ and ‘Patented Super Balance’. The movement number is ‘65296’. The Strap To complete this piece we’ve added a new, high quality, dark brown lizard skin strap with gold plated buckle.
