Description: This is a fairly large, round, gold vintage watch made by Rolex. It was most likely made in 1952, but certainly no later than 1962. It has a bubble back shape, a Thunderbird bezel, and a black dial. It was intended as a men’s watch, but also works well for women, as larger watches are currently en vogue. This watch has dauphine hands, 18 jewels, and golden spearhead hour and minute indices. It is marked on the face: Rolex Officially Certified Chronometer and also marked inside the case.
The black leather band is marked on the back: King’s 18 Genuine Lizard. The band is worn, but in usable condition.

Use: This watch can be hand wound.

Condition: Great

Details: This watch has a few very minor marks on the dial, commensurate with age, but is in perfect working order. It has been professionally authenticated and serviced. It does have a replacement crown.
