It is difficult enough to get a good 1950’s automatic Rolex but to obtain one with dial and hands in totally original and untouched condition is a rare find. The case back is date stamped II.58 denoting that the watch was put together in the second quarter of 1958, However, according to the original guarantee, the watch was sold in  December 1959. Rolex design and quality at its best.

  • Stainless steel case with screw down winder and screw down back
  • Automatic movement
  • Original “Explorer” type dial with Arabic numerals at 3, 6 and 9 as well as daggers shaped hour markers. 
  • Plexi crystal
  • Original jubilee bracelet
  • Back date stamped II.58 but sold it 1959
  • 34mm case

Have done business with Tim on a number of occasions, which is testament to him and the company. This time around I part exchanged a couple of my watches for a couple of Speedmasters and a Panerai. As ever the contact and correspondence was very professional and first class from Tim. More than happy with the deal and the watches I secured are fantastic and all as described. If anyone is thinking of buying a watch from Tim, please don't hesitate. I would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks to all at SWC
