VINTAGE WATCHES, PRE-OWNED & USED SWISS, AMERICAN WATCHES & JEWELRY

Rolex Turn-O-Graph ref 1625 SS/14K WG circa 1961

SOLD

Rare, early, and beautiful condition example vintage Rolex Turn-O-Graph ref# 1625 stainless steel case with 14K WG rotating elapsed time bezel, serial# 715,xxx  circa 1961. Featuring a 36mm diameter full size man’s acrylic crystal model with beautiful original early matte silver pie pan, SWISS only dial, with tapered hour indexes, tapered alpha hands, and with 14K WG rotating elapse time bezel with high relief numbers.  Powered by calibre 1560 self winding movement with sweep seconds and date, and with case back date code of II/61. Worn on your choice of fine leather or exoctic strap.

We are not the biggest fans of the sapphire crystal Turn-O-Graphs, or even the plastics with simple baton indexes and hands, and shallow engraved bezels, but this early example with distinctive features changes all of that for us. A rare and fabulous early example that stands above the crowd, will be a significant addition to any vintage Rolex collection. Note that we have selected the correct tropic 36 crystal without the cyclops date magnifying window to show off the dial with the distraction of the raised date window bubble.

Your watch purchase will arrive in our fine glazed leather WBAW? watch pouch. Great for travel or storage. A $45 value! See photo.

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.
