Rose Gold Rolex Octagonal Oyster 1927

Stock No. 2689
An Art Deco vintage wristwatch by Rolex made in 1927.

The Rolex “Oyster” the world’s first waterproof watch.

In 1927 Mercedes Gleitze wore a Rolex Oyster which was sent to her by Hans Wilsdorf, founder of the Rolex Watch Company, to use during her attempt at swimming the English Channel. The success of the performance of the Rolex Oyster during the swim, led to its renown and place in world history. This is a rare opportunity to purchase an original Rolex Oyster from the same year.

Rose gold cushion oyster case in 9 carat gold. Octagonal shaped case with milled bezel hallmarked for Glasgow import in 1927. With period 9ct gold bracelet strap.

15 Jewel Rolex Chronometer Prima movement, timed for 6 positions, for all climates.

Silvered engine turned starburst dial with black Roman numerals, black minute chapter and subsidiary dial for seconds. Blued steel hands.

Case, movement and dial signed.

Case measurements: Length (lug to lug): 35 mm. Width: 28 mm.
Bracelet Length: 18.5cm (at longest)

All watches are given a full thorough service. They are stripped down to their individual parts, thoroughly checked for any obvious wear and tear, cleaned, re-oiled, reassembled and regulated. The final result is that the case, dial and movement are in pristine condition.

Due to the age of the watch naturally we cannot guarantee the watch is waterproof.

Pristine condition, fully serviced, 2 year guarantee and full after sales maintenance service
