We had a very rare find when we came across this stunning Vintage Rolex 4498 dating back to 1946. The same year that the 100th Grand National was run, Joe Louis KO’d Billy Conn in 8 to win the heavyweight boxing title and George Orwell publishes his book “Animal Farm” for the first time in the UK.
As you can see by the image above the watch has been well looked after over its 70 years and is in immaculate condition, and even still has the original dial.
It is a classical time piece in beautiful condition and would be a must have for any serious Rolex collector or a nice to have for any vintage or luxury watch collector.
At Watches of Wesminster our in house watchmaker has given the watch a full service and it is running as perfectly as if it was made yesterday.
If you would like to own this wonderful piece of Rolex history the you can contact us on 07768316371It will be supplied with a 12 months warranty, presentation box and a certificate of authenticity. For more details of the watch please visit our Vintage Rolex 4498 sales page.
