Rolex Precision 4516 9k Gold, 1955
A fine example of the rare Rolex Precision reference 4516 from circa 1955.

Design and Aesthetics: Elegance in Detail
One of the most striking features of the ref. 4516 is its beautifully crafted tear-drop shaped lugs and multi-stepped bezel. These design elements lend the watch an air of sophistication and set it apart from more conventional models.

Dial: A Harmony of Style and Function
A standout feature of this Rolex Precision is its gorgeous dial which has developed a lovely patina, adding a unique character and graceful charm in a way only a vintage watch can. It features applied Arabic numerals and dagger indexes, which provide a clear and elegant display of time.

Case Back: A Personal Touch
Adding to its uniqueness, the case back of this watch includes a personalized inscription. This detail not only adds a layer of personal history but also contributes to the watch's uniqueness.

Movement: Precision Engineered
Powering this timepiece is a manual winding Patented Superbalance movement with 17 jewels. The manual winding mechanism invites a more intimate interaction with the watch, reminiscent of a bygone era of watchmaking.

Concluding thoughts
With fewer and fewer examples of this reference coming to market in such a gorgeous condition, we doubt this Rolex Precision ref. 4516 will hang around for long, especially with our prices!
