A circa 1940s Rolex bubble back automatic wristwatch, with a refinished Roman Arabic California dial and rare Mercedes hand set.
This watch is in superb condition and the Rolex automatic calibre NA630 movement winds easily and keeps excellent time. The crown is the original Rolex Oyster Patented monks head type crown, which still screws down tight onto the case tube. The stainless steel case is in its original unpolished condition and presents an very light engraving on the case back, with an inscription for Christmas 1944 and a what appears to be a servicemans tag number. This adds a particular attraction to the watch that I have elected to keep rather than polish it off.
The watch is supplied on a new Hirsch black Calf leather strap. The case measures 39.5mm long by 32mm wide, excluding the crown.
