Rolex Oyster Perpetual Semi Bubble watch from 1951 with white dial (which over time has naturally taken on a honey hue) A magnificent vintage watch from the great years of American cinema. An automatic watch today worn by men and women looking for an original and pleasant watch with a strong identity. An identity linked to the great hours of American cinema with its nickname given by one of its most famous actresses.

34 mm case, presented here with its original steel bracelet with folding clasp, but which can be accompanied by the most beautiful leather or ostrich bracelets worthy of the famous interpreter of Cleopatra. The Movement of the Rolex 6103 Honeycomb is the Rolex caliber 645, an innovative movement for its time and equipped with 17 jewels to resist shocks. Its design is based on the progress of the Rolex brand during the post-war period and it has an ingenious winding rotor system patented by Rolex in the early 1950s.This movement also inherited the watchmaking innovations of the time: stop-second function (in order to synchronize it precisely with another watch or clock) and chronometer function given the accuracy of its remarkable precision for a movement operating at 18,000 vibrations. per hours. Another remarkable characteristic for the time was its power reserve, worthy of the most recent watches of the 2000s, which allowed it an autonomy of forty-one hours after a complete winding.

From a cosmetic point of view, the watch owes its soft and pleasant lines to a dial that has naturally taken on a honey hue over time, which magnifies the structure of the light background. The sword indexes with double reminder at twelve o'clock harmonize the delicate circular railroad which is also carried over in five-minute sections to the fixed bezel which surrounds the Plexiglas crystal. With a crown and a screwed back, this watch was also one of the newest waterproof watches in the range when it was released. For the little story that explains his nickname: During a party in the early sixties, actor Richard Burton will fall into a body of water... Liz Taylor will be moved and worried about her watch... The actor with the devastating smile that made him famous will reassure her with a sardonic tone with these words: sealed with love ... in reference to the dial of his waterproof Rolex....
