SOLD

This is a 1942 WW2 era all original vintage (smaller) ROLEX measuring 29mm. in a gold filled case with steel OYSTER screw back. These watches were sold at the military PX stores in Canada to soldiers going overseas in WW2. We bought this watch from the family of the original owner who served overseas in WW2. The original wear on the case shown in the photos is hardly visible with the naked eye. Thhi watch reall does look quite good in person. The ORIGINAL Rolex dial is two-tone, with outer 24 hour register, seconds register, luminous Arabic numerals and pencil hands with red sweep seconds. This dial looks fabulous for its age. The Oyster Patent winding crown is still present. The (just cleaned) manual winding caliber 59 movement is correctly signed ROLEX under the dial.
