Offered for sale is possibly the rarest Rolex watch we have ever presented for sale – a Rolex Precision, circa 1951. This is no ordinary Rolex Precision though; bearing the Reference 8029, this watch was fitted in an oversized, 37mm steel case. This particular Reference 8029 features an incredibly rare rose-gold marker “OCC” (Officially Certified Chronometer) dial, almost never seen, with matching Chronometer movement inside, signifying that Rolex produced this as their “high end”, chronometer-grade watch, as compared to the standard dial and movement found in the same reference.
The condition of this rare Rolex Precision is incredible. The case appears unpolished, albeit worn from use, with original and defined beveled lugs, and shows the serial number and Rolex coronet on the outside of the caseback. In addition, the dial is mint, with only the lightest of aging, exceptionally well-preserved.
