1943 Rolex Standard


Usually, when we find these Rolex Standard vintage Canadian watches, they are quite worn. The cases are usually ‘brassed out’ and the dials are heavily stained. This one is very well-preserved and is all original being gold filled with steel back. The case is a contract case made for Rolex by Sutton, a company that often produced cases for Rolex. This is a much more uncommon version of the Rolex Standard, being that the case is quite elongated and curved, measuring 19x47mm. This watch does appear elegant, narrow, and elongated on the wrist. It really exudes a great vintage look. The blued steel hands with sub-seconds are original. The original dial is two-toned, with Arabic-style numerals and copper-toned reflective frame. These cases were often not signed Rolex as they were Canadian-made for Rolex in order to circumvent import duties. This case is completely correct and original. The original Rolex manual winding movement is the modified caliber 59 and Rolex-signed (correctly) under the dial and not on the movement outer plate. These Canadian-version Rolex Standard watches are becoming extremely difficult to find, especially measuring this length.
