A brand new Rolex watch in the high street jeweller’s window will cost five or six times of an vintage antique watch but will lose value as soon as it leaves the showroom in the hands of its purchaser. In contrast, vintage Rolex models like this one are so well established as collectibles that it seems inconceivable that they could ever depreciate in the future. It is perfectly realistic to think that this item could be bought at full market value today, worn for a decade and then sold for a considerable profit. Genuinely well preserved antique Rolex watches are not cheap initially, but over a longer time period have proven themselves to be superb vehicles for capital appreciation.
This is a simply beautiful yet rare Rolex gents watch, dating from the 1920's . It is in excellent condition for a watch dating back nearly ninety years. It is quite uncommon to have a large dial ( face) watch for the era. This clean classic Art Deco dial with highly sought-after ‘exploding’ number hour markers makes the watch distinctly conspicuous.
