Super Rare 1948 Full Size (33 mm) Steel Rolex Precision Gents Vintage Watch
Super Rare 1948 Full Size (33 mm) Steel Rolex Precision Gents Vintage Watch



The Overview
This is a stunning example of the extremely beautiful and very rare steel Rolex Precision dating from 1948. The majority of the Precision range were made in gold and also often in the smaller, known as midsize, case of 30 mm excluding the crown. Being steel and the full size, at 33 mm, it’s an extremely desireable piece.
The steel case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear – the serial number, used to date the watch, is extremely well defined. The original and very slightly off-white Rolex signed dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standard and is classically Rolex. The raised rose gold Arabic numbers with rose gold ‘stick’ batons in between along with the slim rose gold hands (blued steel with bubble at the stop second hand) create a soft contrast to the dial and steel case. We’ve struggled to capture the colours on the photograph and picture 1 gives the true colours. The high grade ‘fab suisse’ Rolex signed manual wind movement is again in very good condition and has just been serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this lovely piece we’ve added a new, high quality, black Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches crocodile skin strap with steel Hirsch 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 – the serial number, used to date the watch, is extremely well defined. The case measures 33 mm across, excluding the Rolex signed crown and 40 mm long including the lugs. The serial number, on the outside case back, is ‘055264’ dating it to 1948. The inside case is signed ‘Acier Inoxyable’, ‘Rolex 31 Victories De Haute Precision’, ‘Geneve Suisse’, ‘SAR’ and the case reference is ‘4061’.

The Dial
The original and very slightly off-white Rolex signed dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standard and is classically Rolex. The raised rose gold Arabic numbers with rose gold ‘stick’ batons in between along with the slim rose gold hands (blued steel with bubble at the stop second hand) create a soft contrast to the dial and steel case. We’ve struggled to capture the colours on the photograph and picture 1 gives the true colours. The dial is signed ‘Rolex Precision’ and ‘Swiss Made’.

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

The Strap
To complete this lovely piece we’ve added a new, high quality, black Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches crocodile skin strap with steel 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.
