Rolex steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1947

A handsome mid-sized steel manually wound wristwatch

This handsome mid-sized wristwatch dates to circa 1947. The silvered dial has light oxidation to the surface giving the watch a great vintage look. The blued steel ‘feuille’ hands provide a clear contrast between the gold coloured tone of the Arabic numerals and the surface of the dial itself. This watch was manufactured by Rolex for the UK market and the steel case was supplied to them by the Dennison case company. A Dennison Ref. 12325 case, the design is very similar to the Dennison Ref. 12327 the main difference being the angular chamfered bezel of the present watch compared to the rounded bezel of the 12325. The watch is powered by a Rolex, 15 jewel, manually wound calibre with patented Rolex Superbalance.
