Christmas came for me watchwise in the form of rectangular little rolex a week ago. this is a watch with christmas spirit thou, quite literally. if you'll swipe right you will see why. i still think it's kinda weird wearing a watch that has some other peoples names on it, especially if the people are long gone, but i bought it anyway. watch came in today from australia, last owned had it for 25 years after he won it in an auction. seller said its from 1924, no idea how would he know that. sterling silver with british import hallmark on the case, probably imported from switzerland. lovely patina on the dial, blued hands, swiss movement seems to keep good time, fixed lugs for 19-20mm strap. it's a bit bigger than my other vintage rectangulars. crown looks a bit out of place, it might have been replaced at some point, i'll try to find more suitable onion crown if i can, or maybe not, we'll see. that thing sure did travelled all around the world and saw alot of stuff.
