In an era dominated by Rolex’s pioneering strides in useful, tool-based wristwatches, the Rolex Precision “Disco Volante” reference 9919 emerges as a hidden treasure, a lesser-known dress timepiece that gracefully defies the conventional Rolex aesthetic of the 1960s. Its ultra-round, almost flying saucer-like design sets it apart, making it a unique departure from the more recognizable sporty silhouettes associated with the Crowned Brand, and positioning it as a rival to the elegance found in Audemars Piguet or Patek Philippe dress watches of that time. Crafted with precision and exclusivity, the ref. 9919 boasts a robust 36 mm 18K yellow-gold case, adorned with intricate bezel detailing, a testament to the meticulous craftsmanship synonymous with Rolex. The screw-down case back, a feature of durability and reliability, ensures the watch’s exceptional condition is not just an aesthetic marvel but a lasting legacy. This particular timepiece, preserved in outstanding condition, features a champagne dial that adds a touch of warmth and sophistication. Its manual winding caliber 225, a testament to Rolex’s commitment to precision, powers the watch, embodying the artistry of watchmaking in its purest form. The scarcity of the Rolex Precision “Disco Volante” reference 9919 adds to its allure, as very few were produced, and even fewer have stood the test of time. The watch’s design integrity remains fully intact, with deep and clear serial numbers and the iconic Rolex crown on the back, marking its authenticity and heritage. For the discerning Rolex collector or those seeking to add a unique piece to a diverse collection, this 9919 presents an unparalleled opportunity. Perfectly encapsulating the spirit of an era defined by understated elegance, this Rolex Precision is a rare expression of artistry, history, and the enduring allure of timeless design, coming with box and service.
