SOLD!

Here is an extremely rare OVERSIZED vintage ROLEX that we believe to date to the mid to late 1920’s! The massive and signed snow white case is signed RWC (Rolex Watch co.) and (of course) is original. The case size is amongst the LARGEST we’ve ever found in a 20’s ROLEX; measuring 29.5x41.5mm, which will provide MUCH wrist coverage! The lug width is 20.5mm. and retains the original and adjustable (unsigned) full length bracelet which appears to also be original to this watch. The bracelet quickly narrows to 12.5mm., as was the style of these 20’s bracelets. The case is hinged and enhanced with hand carved filigree sides. The dial is completely original and retains the original blued steel hands with some luminous missing (certainly not affecting the overall look). Notice the LARGE Arabic numeral on this dial! There is usual ageing to this completely original two-tone dial. It really has a great vintage look for its’ age, I would never refinish it! This original and museum quality vintage ROLEX box is called the MOROCCAN. This box was hand made in the 1920’s by ROLEX and are simply the rarest and most seldom seen of all ROLEX boxes! Hand etched and painted by artisans with a velvet insert and silk lined, these boxes are the pinnacle of all watch boxes. We have seen one other of these sell for $1100 on eBay about a decade ago. This box came with this watch! We purchased this watch from an estate many years ago and have been reluctant to sell it until now. If you are seeking a large and extremely rare and early ROLEX watch-here it is.
