"Officially Tested" indicating Chronometer certification and struck with a Chronometer stamp and number, this magnificent Vintage Rolex movement represented the very finest of timepieces produced by Rolex marketed at the top end of their range.

A beautiful Gentleman's Vintage Rolex Officially Tested Chronometer wristwatch in 18ct. Gold, C.1936.

The classic rectangular 18ct. Gold case of distinctly Art Deco design, with flat raised bezel, curved case ends and canted lugs. The colour of the Gold is of a wonderful rich deep yellow.

Struck inside the case, British Import Hallmarks for the year 1936, signed "Rolex 25 Worlds Records,Geneva Suisse. RWC Ltd. (Rolex Watch Co.Ltd), and with Swiss control marks for 18ct. Gold.

The silvered dial with subsidiary seconds, raised gilt numerals and yellow Gold feuille hands.

The magnificent lever movement Jewelled to the centre, signed; "Rolex Swiss Made, Officially tested in 8 ways, 18 Rubies", with the Official Chronometer testing number "20141" and Chronometer stamp on the bridge.

Over the years I have come across this beautiful vintage 1930s Rolex model, in various types of case metal, occasionally in Sterling Silver, but mostly 9ct.Gold and very, very rarely in 18ct. Gold. (The largest market supplied by Rolex in the 1930s was the British Empire, with 9ct. Gold the most popular and widely accepted grade of Gold).

The movements fitted in the range were of varying grades, mostly 15 Jewels and sometimes 17 Jewels, with the highest quality Chronometer 18 Jewelled movements very occasionally being supplied.

A beneficial and seldom seen combination of a beautiful 18ct. Gold case and the very highest grade movement that Rolex produced, an officially tested and numbered Chronometer, make this Vintage Rolex timepiece exceptionally rare and desirable.


A very rare and most handsome Vintage Rolex model of the very highest quality, from a truly golden period of wristwatch design, in excellent condition.
