Rolex Oyster Double Signed Bucherer, Papers, Receipt and Carl Bucherer Signature circa 1946

$8,650.00

Time capsule Rolex Oyster manual wind reference #4377 circa 1946 with original Bucherer signed dial, original purchase receipt from Bucherer, and with original Rolex Bucherer papers signed by Carl Bucherer! Featuring a 34mm diameter previously polished case with smooth bezel and acrylic crystal, with very attractive, and original warmly patina’d matte silver dial with raised rose gold Roman figures and rose baton hands. Dial reads Rolex Oyster Bucherer’s, Shock Resisting and SWISS. Powered by manual wind caliber 1210 movement with sweep seconds with original screw down Oyster crown.  In good running condition.

This remarkable watch includes the original Bucherer purchase receipt documenting the purchase of this watch on Feb 15, 1946 for 150 Swiss Francs, the original Rolex Bucherer warrantee personally signed by company founder Carl Bucherer. Also included is the original 3 fold Rolex instructional booklet, the original Bucherer logo envelope with the name and address of the purchaser, a U.S. Navy Captain from Wilmington, Delaware. The receipt and warranty both reference presumably a company inventory code of HR 724-1 for this model.

All the documents including the outer envelope are remarkably well preserved and document this noteworthy purchase and historical record from Bucherer, signed by the company’s founder who would have been 58 years old at the time he signed this purchase receipt.

Brand

Vintage Rolex & Pre-Owned Rolex Watches

There is no watch brand more associated with quality, prestige, luxury, success, and social status than Rolex. Founded in the UK in 1908 and soon relocated to Switzerland, Rolex is credited with countless technical advances in time keeping accuracy, the introduction in 1928 of the water and dust resistant “Oyster” case, and in 1933, the perfection of the self winding “Perpetual” movement. With sponsorship of sporting events as wide reaching as the America’s cup, to the Daytona 500, golf and tennis tournaments, and expeditions to the far reaches of the world, Rolex has always promoted it’s brand as an icon of success, achievement, and conquest. With popular “tool” watches such as the diver’s Submariner or Seadweller, the Aviator’s dual time zone GMT, the spelunker’s 24 hour Explorer, or the auto racer’s Daytona, Rolex has created loyal followings for the sports minded man. And the dressy Datejust and Presidential models, once the CEO’s trademark timepiece, are now much sought after by both men and woman as a luxury fashion statement. Whether vintage Rolex or more contemporary, your choice of a Rolex will always be a good choice.

All of our pre-owned Vintage Rolex watches are fully restored and guaranteed genuine to give you excellent service and piece of mind.
