This vintage, circa 1942 ROLEX SKYROCKET WW2 Pilot’s watch is an ALL ORIGINAL EXAMPLE, including the very uncommon ORIGINAL black dial, blued steel pencil hands, dustproof winding crown. Look at the original and amazingly aged lume on this dial! The 29mm. STERLING SILVER case is original and fine looking-unpolished, retaining the original patina. This watch could be shiny and lustrous with a gentle hand polish-we prefer the original silver tarnish. The JUST CLEANED, manual winding caliber 59 movement. (signed ROLEX under the dial) is accurate. The sterling silver model is much harder to find than any of the gold filled or steel. We bought this watch right from the family of the original owner. Remember…these are small watches.Â Very collectable and becoming harder to find-expecially with beautiful black dial like this!
