1938 Rolex Oyster ‘Egyptian’ Art Deco Ladies Vintage Watch (VW504)
Presented in near mint original condition is this extremely rare 1938 ladies stainless steel vintage Rolex Oyster known as the ‘Egyptian’. This very rare Art Deco Rolex model was produced in limited numbers in the mid to late 1930s with very few ever making it to market today, our research shows that ours is the only one available at this time. This superb Rolex also comes with its original Harrods box and equally rare Rolex instruction manual. The now fitted Montal bracelet was originally purchased with the watch but never fitted and can be termed as ‘new old stock’.
The ultra rare stainless steel Art Deco Rolex Oyster case is in close to mint condition and is of the highest quality. The case measures 24mm in diameter excluding the signed Rolex Oyster winding crown with the overall length including the stepped lugs is 29mm. The screw case back is signed ‘ROLEX WATCH Co. GENEVA SWISS’, the serial number 65xxx dates this Rolex to 1938. This Art Deco Rolex case has stepped lugs that then connect to the adjustable period bracelet. The stepped case lugs have a brushed satin finish with the case body and case in contrast back being highly polished.
The original stainless steel Montal link bracelet is in mint unused condition and is complete with original tag and display card. The bracelet will fit an 18cm wrist or can be adjusted down at the clasp.
The original satin silver dial is in mint restored condition and is a rare type. The dial has very attractive raised gold Arabic numerals making them really stand out from the dial, the blue steel hands and sub seconds contrast beautifully with the silver dial. The dial is signed ‘ROLEX OYSTER SWISS MADE’.
The high grade manual wind 15 Jewel Swiss made Rolex caliber 700 movement is in oustanding condition and is keeping excellent time over a 36hr period, this movement has been well cared for over the years and has had a recent service. The watch winds and sets smoothly. The movement is signed ‘ROLEX 15 RUBIES SWISS MADE FAB SUISSE’.
The original Harrods box is in superb condition and still retains its lift out cushion watch holder. The original Rolex instruction manual is also a very rare item in its own right and seldom seen.
This Rolex is supplied with a Vintage Winders Authentication Certificate, a Vintage Winders receipt/warranty document and instructions for care and use supplied in a Vintage Winders glossy folder. The certificate and receipt contain full details of the watch including make, model, serial number, movement caliber and bracelet/strap type.
