A wonderful example of an original Canadian market Rolex from the 1940’s. The all-original 24 hour military dial is still in the original fine condition. The Rolex Victory and Skyrocket were popular gifts for soldiers heading overseas during the second world war. They have been increasingly scarce to find and this is an attractive model to have in your collection. The Rolex calibre 59 Swiss-made movement was just serviced by my Rolex trained watchmaker and is keeping excellent time.

The watch measures 29.5 mm wide by 36mm long and is supplied on your choice of black or brown leather strap.
