Rolex Oyster Lipton WW2-era Military


This watch was made by Rolex for the Canadian market only. These watches were sold at PX military stores in WW2 to soldiers going overseas. The smaller 29mm stainless steel Oyster case size made them less likely to be damaged during battle. We purchased this watch from the original owner. The dials are interesting and complicated on these Liptons. This one has an original dial, Arabic numerals, sub-seconds, all with original patina. The blued steel pencil hands are original. This watch retains the original Oyster-patented winding crown, which is also in excellent shape. The caliber 59 (correctly signed “Rolex” under the dial) was just cleaned and is accurate.
