Just Beautiful 1942 Mid-Size (30mm) Rolex Oyster Sub-Second Ladies Vintage WatchJust Beautiful 1942 Mid-Size (30mm) Rolex Oyster Sub-Second Ladies Vintage Watch


The Overview
This is a beautiful example of the mid-size Rolex Oyster Sub-Second dating from 1942. The steel case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear. These were original designed for men when the fashion was for smaller watches but as tastes changed they are now a perfect size for girls. The original Rolex signed slightly off-white dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standard and is classically Rolex. The alternating Arabic numbers and straight baton hour markers are in mushroom and the inner 24 hour markers are in red. The hands are in matching mushroom with black outer line and with the outer minute ring and sub-second the dial is just beautiful. The very high grade Rolex signed ‘Fab Suisse’ manual wind movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this piece we’ve added a new, dark brown, crocodile skin strap with steel aftermarket Rolex buckle.
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 steel case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear. These were original designed for men when the fashion was for smaller watches but as tastes changed they are now a perfect size for girls. The case measures 30mm across, excluding the Rolex signed winding crown and 35 mm long including the lugs. The inside case is signed ‘Rolex Geneve Suisse’, ’31 Victories Haute Precision Brevette’, ‘RWC Ltd’ and the case number is ‘2280’.

The Dial
The original Rolex signed slightly off-white dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standard and is classically Rolex. The alternating Arabic numbers and straight baton hour markers are in mushroom and the inner 24 hour markers are in red. The hands are in matching mushroom with black outer line and with the outer minute ring and sub-second the dial is just beautiful. The dial is signed ‘Rolex Oyster’ and ‘Swiss Made’.

The Movement
The very high grade Rolex signed ‘Fab Suisse’ manual wind movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. The movement is signed ‘Rolex 17 Rubies’, ‘Fab Suisse Swiss Made’ and ‘Patented Superbalance’.

The Strap
To complete this piece we’ve added a new, dark brown, crocodile skin strap with steel aftermarket Rolex buckle.
