Vintage Military Rolex



2015-07-06 13:11:14

Dating from 1940, this military Rolex wristwatch is a beauty and a fine example of vintage design. The distinctively large crown gives the timepiece its nickname of OIversize Crown, presumably it was included to make it easier to operate while wearing gloves. 

The strap on this watch is particularly nice- a dark calfskin leather which looks like a recent addition, though for its age the watch looks very well kept too! Estimated value from Auctionata is €1,400.
