Watch details

This is an incredible example of a Rolex precision from the 1950's. It is on 18k gold manual wind watch with beautiful double signed original dial by Joyeria Riviera. This was the official Rolex retailer in Puerto Rico. This double signature is very scare and highly collectible.

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.
