Rolex Prince wristwatch ref 971 9ct two tone gold

Rolex Prince Ref:971-9ct White and Yellow Gold Case


In 1928 when the watch was first introduced, it came in two styles: the Classic model 1343 and the Brancard model 971. The Classic was a plain rectangular model and the Brancard also known as the 'Flared' model. The Brancard was always nearly 10% more expensive than the Classic

This Rolex Prince wristwatch with corresponding case serial numbers 65103 was maufactured in 1935 making this wristwatch 70+ years old. This Prince with its large two tone gold case was a large wristwatch for its day (1930's), making it perfect for todays size styles (23mm inc crown x 42mm). The Rolex Prince was designed for men of distinction.

What makes these wristwatches stand out from the rest is the fact that the dial is split into two with the minute and hour dial obviously at the top with a prominent small seconds dial at the bottom, the calibre 300 is the only Rolex movement to have this configuration. These watches were also called 'The Doctors Watch' due to the fact of the prominent sub seconds.

This wristwatch was purchased from the original owner. The dial was professionaly restored some time ago and has aged gracefully. The manual wound Rolex Calibre movement ref 300 has been serviced in our own workshop and comes with a 2 year guarantee.
