Stunning 1958 Rolex Oyster ‘Chronometer’ Standard Gents Vintage Watch
This is a stunning example of the iconic Rolex Oyster Perpetual dating from 1958 – please excuse the pictures’ this watch has a delicious silver pearlescent dial and looks even better in real life. The original and extremely beautiful Rolex signed silver pearlescent dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standard and is classically Rolex. The applied steel hour batons and steel hands flow into the dial and gleaming provenance polished steel case (matt shoulders and polished sides). The case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear and the Rolex signed screw down winding crown is working perfectly. The very high grade Rolex signed ‘Chronometer Standard’ automatic ‘Butterfly’ 1030 movement is in excellent condition and has just been serviced by my watchmaker. To complete this iconic watch I’ve added a new, high quality, Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches black crocodile skin strap with steel Hirsch buckle.
Watches of this quality and in this condition are extremely rare and highly sought after – if history is any judge they will only increase in value.
As mentioned, it has just been serviced by my watchmaker and, in view of the high-grade Swiss movement, I will include a 3 month guarantee on the movement which is long enough for you to assess the working order. Also, I offer a full refund if you are not entirely happy, as long as the watch is returned within 14 days in the same condition with a recognised and insured courier.
The provenance polished (gloss sides and matt shoulders) solid stainless steel screw down case is in excellent condition, with only the most minor signs of wear.

The inside back is signed ‘Montres Rolex SA Geneva Switzerland Patented’, ‘Stainless Steel’ and the case number of ‘6567’. It has the reference of 1.1958 dating it to 1958
The original and stunning Rolex signed silver pearlescent dial is just beautiful. The original and perfect steel Rolex hands and applied steel hour batons flow beautifully into the dial and are perfectly framed by the gleaming steel fluted Bezel – as mentioned, the we’re struggling to capture the pearlescent finish to this dial and it looks even better in real life. It is signed ‘Rolex Oyster Perpetual’, ‘Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified’ and ‘T Swiss T’ The lens has been replaced and shows no signs of wear or scratching.
The original Rolex signed and very high-grade Chronometer standard automatic movement is in excellent condition.
