Shown on a distressed leather strap with complements and accentuates the rich vintage appearance of this fine example.

So called gilt dials found on early sport models circa 1957 to 1966 such as the GMT, Submariner and Explorer 1 are extremely sought after and add many thousands of dollars in value over their later matte dial versions. Such dials are occasionally found on Airking, Datejust, Oyster Date or Oyster Perpetual Date models like the current example and are often overlooked. The distinctive feature is the silver or gold “guilded” characteristic of the printing, rather than the more typical shiny silver or white printing found on later models. The current example is a very rich example of the gilt dial era.

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.
