Rolex Military Pocket Watch

Rolex military issue pocket watch.  Rolex themselves need no introduction as they are one of the most famous watch houses in the world.  In the early days of their history they were making pocket watches before the advent of the wristwatch.  This one is one of their military watches that was issued to the British armed forces during the World War 1 period and is more than likely to have been issued to an officer.  The style is typical in military design with a mat black dial with large and bold numerals and hands, some of the luminous fill has fallen from the hands, but a decent watchmaker will be able to restore the hands, however it is best left and it is being sold as it is.  The dial is signed Rolex and the numbers A17274.  As with all military watches, the case is metal alloy.  The case back is stamped with the military issue numbers “A. 17274, below that G.S. MK II and beneath that a broad arrow.  The inside of the case back is also stamped by Rolex.  The movement is in excellent condition and the bridge is stamped with Rolex.  It is a 15 jewel stem wound movement.  This is a wonderful piece of military memorabilia and one to be treasured by a collector which appeals to militaria and Rolex enthusiasts alike.  Dimensions are width is 50 mm and thickness is 15mm
