This is a slim Vintage Stainless Steel, ROLEX GENTS Wristwatch, which dates to 1946c and is in Very GOOD CONDITION. It has a Silver-Grey Dial with raised Gold Roman Numerals – not many of which seem to come to market
It has a 15J ROLEX Calibre 700 Movement ( with early Shock Resisting Balance and Breguet over-coil Hairspring), which is signed ROLEX etc, as in the pics. It was recently serviced by a Rolex trained Watchmaker, who fitted a genuine Rolex replacement mainspring, so that timekeeping is almost perfect.
The Slim Stainless Steel Case (3.5mm rim) – with the ultra rare Ref. 4498, is signed Rolex with LOGO on the inside back cover and is in superb condition. It also has the Rolex Logo imprinted on the reverse, with sn 416289.
It has been fitted with an 18mm – Grey Leather Strap and measures 228mm overall – (REF:L632)
