A gentleman's high grade

Rolex Wristwatch C.1937.

 

Please quote Stock # 2961.

A magnificent and very rare example of a gentleman's vintage Rolex wristwatch in Steel, C.1937.

Coming from a truly golden age of wristwatch case design, this particular vintage Rolex,( Rolex model reference number; 2873) is extremely rare and seldom seen, especially so in such original condition.

The Art-Deco period produced the most beautiful and elegant wristwatch cases to ever come out of Switzerland and this wonderful stylish wristwatch epitomizes the Deco period.

This particular vintage Rolex wristwatch not only possess a most handsome and outstanding case of a classic Deco design but also has one of the most beautiful original copper coloured dials I have seen.

The dial is signed "Rolex Fab Suisse Swiss Made" with a double minute track and a double five minute track.

The finely engine turned, sunken subsidiary seconds dial also has a beautiful double seconds track and outer chapter ring with numerals ten to sixty. There is some light spotting to the surface but this does not detract at all from the beauty of this wonderful dial.

The outer double minutes track is filled with a beautiful band of a different coloured gilt. The hours marked with typically Art-Deco numerals twelve, nine and three.

The overall appearance is quite magnificent and so classically Deco.

The rectangular steel case with canted, faceted sides and down turned lugs, in excellent condition, signed "Rolex 25 Worlds Records Geneva Suisse" with Crown logo and struck "SAR".Case number and model number to the case back exterior.

The high grade lever movement in superb condition signed "Rolex Fab Suisse Swiss Made 15 Rubies".

 

 

Classic original "baton" hands in blued steel are too of a very Art-Deco style as is the dial and case, an outstanding, vintage combination.

A very rare vintage Rolex model in suburb condition.
