1948 Rose Gold Rolex Jumbo (38mm) Precision Vintage Watch (VW650)
This particular type of Rolex is a first for Vintage Winders and shows just how scarce and rare this fine timepiece really is. Presented in close to mint condition an extremely rare vintage 1948 solid 18ct rose gold ‘Jumbo’ size Rolex Precision. Very few of these Rolex’s were made and they are now extremely rare and very collectable. The ‘Jumbo’ size being a fraction under 38mm (37.7mm) would have been a massive watch in its day when the average gents watches were measuring around 30-32mm. The other rare feature of this watch is the high grade chronometer movement complete with a very rare Swan Neck Micro-adjuster. We consider this Rolex to be an important piece and will continue to appreciate in value.
The genuine top quality Jumbo size 18ct rose gold vintage Rolex ref: 4364 case is in close to mint condition, this rare case has beautiful teardrop lugs giving it a real presence when worn. The case measures 38mm in diameter excluding the solid gold Rolex signed winding crown. The snap on case back is signed ‘ROLEX GENEVE SUISSE 4364 18K .750’.
This Rolex has been fitted with a new hand made 18mm brown leather Hirsch strap and retains its solid 18ct rose gold Rolex buckle. This quality leather strap compliments the watch beautifully.
The original brushed silver dial is in mint condition and looks superb when worn. The dial has very attractive alternate raised rose gold Arabic numerals and baton hour markers making them really stand out from the dial, the rose gold gilded hands and seconds sweep contrast beautifully with the silver dial. The dial is signed ‘ROLEX PRECISION SWISS MADE’.
The high grade 18 Jewel Swiss made Rolex caliber 710 chronometer movement is in beautiful 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/overhaul.
