Stunning 1959 Solid 9ct Gold Rolex Coin Edge Precision with Box and Guarantee Gents Vintage WatchStunning 1959 Solid 9ct Gold Rolex Coin Edge Precision with Box and Guarantee Gents Vintage Watch


The Overview
This is a beautiful example of the solid 9ct yellow gold Rolex Precision dating from 1959. The very rare solid 9ct gold ‘Coin Edge’ case is in excellent condition with only the most minor signs of wear – there is an engraving on the case back. We usually avoid engraved watches but this one has the original guarantee, dated 1959 and the original Rolex coffin box (insert missing). To find paperwork with any watch over 20 years old is extremely rare and to find the original Rolex box is wonderful (the case is also the rarer version with the coin edge carried onto the lugs). The stunning and original Rolex signed ivory/cream dial is untouched and again in excellent condition. We usually refinish dials as they suffer from heavy patina but this one has aged beautifully (I would suggest it was rarely worn and kept in its box). The applied gold Arabic hour numbers at the quarters and applied gold batons in between along with the original gold hands (blued steel second hand) provide the softest contrast to the dial and blend perfectly with the gleaming gold case – please see picture 6 for the colours of the Numbers and Hands). The very high grade Rolex signed manual wind movement is again in very good condition and has just been fully serviced by my watchmaker. To complete this very special watch I have added a new, high quality Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches black crocodile skin strap with a gold plated Hirsch buckle.
As mentioned, we also have the original green Rolex coffin style box which is in overall very good condition but does have the insert missing (it carries the Rolex logo on the front and the initials ‘FF’ in gold leaf). We also have the original guarantee dating it to 1959. As mentioned, this is incredibly rare.
My asking price is below the value for a watch of this condition and rarity, particularly with the continual rise in value of vintage watches of this high quality. In view of the high grade Swiss movement, I will include a three month written guarantee on the movement, which is long enough for you to assess the working order.

The Case
The very rare solid 9ct gold ‘Coin Edge’ case is in excellent condition with only the most minor signs of wear – there is an engraving on the case back. We usually avoid engraved watches but this one has the original guarantee, dated 1959 and the original Rolex coffin box (insert missing). To find paperwork with any watch over 20 years old is extremely rare and to find the original Rolex box is wonderful (the case is also the rarer version with the coin edge carried onto the lugs). The case measures 33 mm across, excluding the Rolex signed winding crown and 41 mm long including the lugs. The inside case is signed ‘D S & S’ (this is the English casemaker, Shackman, who made cases for a lot of the major brands including Rolex, Omega, Jaeger and Breitling) and the case number is ‘05775’. It has the appropriate hallmarks for solid 9ct gold – the Lion is the London Assay Office and the age letter is ‘d’ dating it to 1959.

The Dial
The stunning and original Rolex signed ivory/cream dial is untouched and again in excellent condition. We usually refinish dials as they suffer from heavy patina but this one has aged beautifully (I would suggest it was rarely worn and kept in its box). The applied gold Arabic hour numbers at the quarters and applied gold batons in between along with the original gold hands (blued steel second hand) provide the softest contrast to the dial and blend perfectly with the gleaming gold case – please see picture 6 for the colours of the Numbers and Hands). The dial is signed ‘Rolex’, ‘Precision’ and ‘Swiss’.

The Movement
The very high grade Rolex signed manual wind movement has just been fully serviced by my watchmaker. The movement is signed ‘Montres Rolex SA Geneva Swiss’, ‘Seventeen 17 Jewels’ and the movement number is ‘N55559’.

The Strap
To complete this very special watch I have added a new, high quality Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches black crocodile skin strap with a gold plated Hirsch buckle.

The Conclusion
This is a rare and highly collectable vintage watch from one of horology’s most famous names and will, if history is any judge, provide an excellent financial investment as well as a possession to treasure and enjoy.
