Of all the watches that I collect and sell, this is perhaps the only firm that needs little introduction…having built its business over the last century on high quality, innovation and style. The Rolex Watch Co. of Switzerland, founded by Hans Wilsdorf and his brother in law Alfred Davis, would first establish his business in England (1908) before settling in Switzerland. By 1919, Wilsdorf had established the Manufacture des Montres Rolex, at a time when the movements were crafted in Bienne and the watches were hand-finished in Geneva. On average, more than 200 technicians are involved in producing a single Rolex wristwatch, quite remarkable.
I am a watch collector as well as buyer and seller of new, pre-owned, antique, and vintage watches
We Are U.S.A. Based Sellers
I only sell genuine, authentic, watches in "Good" to "Pristine" condition
A careful shopper who takes the time to study the photos, reads the entire description, and asks pertinent questions is our best customer.
Please note that all pictures are taken on the macro setting. This makes even the slightest imperfections, shadows during photography, and specks of dust appear much more prominent even though they are often not visible without magnification.
You will be pleasantly surprised, and receive many compliments, when wearing your watch. There is nothing that draws attention quite like a stunning watch.
