Rolex - 1950s Gold Dress Watch - 9k Gold Dennison Case - All Original Condition


1950’s Rolex – solid 9k Gold ‘Dennison’ 30mm case, produced in Birmingham (confirmed as per hallmarks). Beautifully aged vintage dial with an interspersed array of Arabic numeral and arrowhead hour markers. There is a mild, yet deep golden tone to the watch on the dial where the original radium in the hands has matured slowly. These marks are most prominent at 8.20pm where the hands had stood still for many years while the watch sat unused in a sock drawer, though we see this as an enhancement, not a defect to the watch’s aesthetic and testament to its fantastic condition not having been used for many years.

Although the case measures in at only 30mm, the straight edges give it added prominence which, together with the chunky bezel, add to an oversized feel relative to the diameter.

We feel that this watch would look sublime in combination with a suit or shirt cuff, though the dial and case make for a beautiful wear in any formal setting.

This watch came to us by-way-of a regular contact who purchased the watch from the original owner in our presence. Rest assured this watch has been taken very good care of by its one careful owner.

A fantastic entry level Rolex purchase for you at this price!
