This is a special Rolex Pre-Cellini with the Diamond Alkali Company Logo Reference 3038, crafted in 1958. It is a vintage masterpiece that marries horological elegance with a touch of personal history.

Fashioned from 14k yellow gold, the watch features a caseback engraved in honor of John A. Bailey’s dedicated service from 1918 to 1958 for Diamond Alkali Company, adding a layer of sentimental value to this timeless piece.

The flawless white dial, adorned with the Diamond Alkali Company logo, reflects the meticulous craftsmanship characteristic of Rolex. The 34mm case diameter, a classic dimension, ensures a perfect balance between vintage charm and contemporary wearability.

Protected by a plexiglas crystal, the watch maintains its authentic vintage appeal. The absence of lume further emphasizes the elegance and simplicity of the design.

The Italian Taupe Tuscan made calfskin leather strap not only adds a touch of luxury to the wrist but complements the watch’s vintage aesthetic.

While this vintage Rolex Pre-Cellini Reference 3038 does not come with its original box and papers, its engraved caseback and flawless design make it a unique collector’s item with a story to tell—a genuine vintage treasure that transcends time.
