This is a correct and all-original Rolex Victory pilot’s watch housed in the original Pioneer chrome-plated, 29mm (small) case with steel back. These ID cases were used by Rolex here in Canada to circumvent import duties and are completely original and authentic to these WW2 Rolex watches. The Rolex Victory and Skyrocket watches were marketed to soldiers going overseas in WW2 and sold to them in PX stores. This original black dial looks great with its detailed minute scale and 24-hour display in both gold and silver gilt printing. The caliber 59 Rolex movement was the only movement used in these watches and was not signed on the exposed bridge, but are correctly signed on the movement plate underneath the dial. This manual winding Rolex movement was just cleaned and is accurately keeping time. Black-dial Rolex watches are the most desirable.
