This beautiful sterling silver Marconi model was manufactured by Rolex in 1917.

Hallmarked London 1917 , along with the Rolex ‘W&D’ sponsors marks and patent number.

Moisture – proof screwed case back tightens down perfectly as it should and top cover releases smartly on the spring when the release button is pressed. The porcelain-enamel dial is absolutely perfect,with no cracks chips or hairlines at all.

The Luminous Arabic figures have lost a little paint over the years,but still look good. The blued steel hands are in perfect condition.

The original glass has yellowed a little unfortunately ,but it would be a shame to renew it given to the originality of the piece.

The original period leather strap is also in fine supple order and still perfectly wearable.

Original winding crown clearly also still present.The back is a little scratched from gentle use but other than this the watch is in fine original condition.
