Since first being produced in 1926 the Rolex Oyster has become one if the most iconic watches in history, and here we are proud to have a vintage Rolex Oyster watch that was made in 1936.
The invention of the Oyster case should not be looked at lightly – this was truly a major leap forward in the evolution of the wrist watch which was still really in its infancy.
The Rolex Oyster case was the first to make a watch truly water and dust proof in a a hermetically sealed case where the back and just as important the crown where now screw down.
Fitted in a 9ct rose gold case, the colour of the gold matches so well with the dial which is all original, not re-painted and has achieved the most lovely patina that only time can do.
With original hands, the dial is easy to read with numerals and sub-seconds at the bottom. Measuring 28mm across plus the original Rolex screw down crown, this is such a handsome vintage Rolex to wear day or night.
Inside is a 15 jewelled manual wind Rolex calibre 10 1/2 that has been completely serviced and now runs perfectly and comes with our twelve month warranty.
A real piece of history, this vintage Rolex not only looks superb it is also one of the earliest Rolex Oyster watches that you can wear on your wrist.
