Rare Vintage Rolex Oyster Neptune Mens Watch Ww2 Military Style 17j Stainless:
This is a vintage mechanical wristwatch dating to 1943, I believe. The watch runs and is accurate to within a few minutes or so over a period of 24 hours. This watch was owned by Albert R. Lopez. Mr. Lopez graduated from San Francisco University in 1943 and most likely became an officer in the US Army at that time. I have a few other items from his belongings listed this week so please take a look. The case is all stainless steel and it is 29 mm wide not including the marked screw down crown. The case is in excellent condition. The back is marked RWC on both the inside and the outside. The back has been engraved as shown. The movement is marked ROW (Rolex) and it has 17 jewels. The band is a vintage 1940s pigskin leather band in very good condition. The total length of the watch is 8 3/4 inches. This uses a 16mm band which could easily be replaced if you prefer a different style or length. The crystal is clean and clear. The dial is depicted accurately in the pictures. Please note that all pictures are taken on the macro setting. This makes even the slightest imperfections and specks of dust appear much more prominent though they are often not visible without magnification. I LOVE TO COMBINE SHIPPING TO SAVE YOU MONEY! I can often ship 3 to 5 watches for the same price as one! I do not know when this was last serviced. Although I guarantee my description to be accurate at the time you receive the watch, I have no way of knowing how long the watch will operate properly after you receive it. Mechanical watches need regular service and lubrication. Please see the clear close-up pictures to further assess the condition of this watch. If you are uncertain about any of this watch's particulars, please feel free to ask questions! Please take time to see my other sales this week. I can often combine ship items to save you money.
