Vintage Rolex Dial Refinishing 10 1/2 HUNTER.

This is an interesting Rolex Dial.  It fits a Rolex manual winding movement.  The movement is marked 10 1/2 HUNTER.  It is also marked 7179 below the Hunter markings.  These markings are located under the dial on the movement.

Most of these that we have seen will have the markings on the movement that simply state 10 1/2 H.

The case for this watch is 18kt rose gold.  It is marked Rolex 31 Victoires, DeHaute Precision, Geneve, Suisse.

The movement as stated is a manual winding movement.  The stem and crown are located at the 3 position.

This dial was in very bad condition but has been restored to original.

Refinished dial installed on the movement.

The case back as well and the crystal bezel snaps onto the case ring.

This Rolex was sent to us from a customer in Bangkok, Thailand.

More information of vintage Rolex watches can be found on our web site.

Rolex President Early Model Design 6605 Diamond Dial.

This is a recent Rolex President that we had the opporturnity to service.  Our customer also wanted diamonds added to the dial.

We also refinished the dial and added the diamonds.  The movement in this watch is a 1065 early Rolex movement.

In addition to overhauling the movement and the new dial, we also installed a new crystal to replace the old worn crystal that was on the watch.

The hands were also refinished.
