 SOLD!

This is a correct, late 1930’s ROLEX manual winding watch measuring a respectable 22x40mm., in a rhodium plated and stepped, striking case.  We had the original case re-plated in rhodium to restore its luster.  There is some pitting on the case rea selaed in a new layer of Rhodium tomprevent further sear, , but none on the front or sides of this fabulous case.  This is a Canadian version ROLEX, with an unsigned Canadian case, which ROLEX used to circumvent import duties back in the 30’s-40’s.  This case is completely correct and original to the watch.  The dial was restored, whilst retaining the original hands.  The original ROLEX, manual winding movement is also interesting; being fully gilded in a gold tone, having GENEVA STRIPES-just cleaned, and accurately keeping time.  We are finding fewer and fewer of this Canadian version ROLEX watches as they are usually in such poor, damaged and un-restorable condition.
