Watch details

Similar is aesthetic to the rare and coveted “Champs Elysees” model from the prior decade, yet at a fraction of the price. The watch combines an oversized-for-the-period case, a textured bezel, sub seconds, stylized hands and mint original condition. It even comes on the original strap with the original vintage Rolex crown buckle! Precision double reference #9837/#9522. At 36mm, this is that ideal size for a dress watch that suits everyone.

Rolex first concentrated on the quality of the movements. The relentless quest for chronometric precision rapidly led to success. In 1910, a Rolex watch was the first wristwatch in the world to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, granted by the Official Watch Rating Centre in Bienne. Four years later, in 1914, Kew Observatory in Great Britain awarded a Rolex wristwatch a class “A” precision certificate, a distinction which until that point in time had been reserved exclusively for marine chronometers. From that date forward, the Rolex wristwatch was synonymous with precision.
