The Vintage Rolex
My Mum's brother - Uncle Roy - aware of my passion for watches has given me two of his watches an Omega and this Rolex Precision. It dates from 1961 and comes with original boxes, original guarantee and original receipt. Currently the watch, in gold case with gold case back, is not working so the next step is a service and a clean to breathe new life into this fantastic gift. Methinks it might be worth a tad more than the original price of Thirty seven pounds five shillings and sixpence!
Oh and for the record the receipt from Watches of Switzerland shows that back in 1961, Uncle Roy got a 7.5% discount on his Rolex!
The watch was my Uncle Roy's 21st birthday present so I feel very proud to be the second owner of this wonderful family watch.
