NOTE- I rarely come across stuff like this. If you collect vintage Rolex watches here is an opportunity to own an historic piece. When I can find one on a dealer site these sell for over 4K but you will not pay that kind of money for this one. See below:

32x38.5 (not counting the crown) ROLEX OYSTER-MERCEDES GLEITZ ca. 1927. The same model that Mercedes Gleitz took with her on her historic swim across the English Channel in 1927. It was the first attempt at Rolex waterproofing a wrist watch and then testing it on the 26 mile swim across the English Channel. This example is in about as nice a condition as any I have seen- and I have not seen many- over the years. Solid silver oyster screw back case. Triple signed- dial, case and movement. Great running Rolex 17J movement. This is a man's watch. I left the patina on the silver case but if someone wanted to polish it they could but that is not recommended. This example even has its original screw down Rolex Oyster crown still left with plenty of threading. I have attached an old Rolex ad showing the watch along with one owned by Mercedes Gleitz. HISTORIC AND COLLECTIBLE FIRST WATERPROOF ROLEX WATCH. - SELL- $2295.00 PLUS SHIPPING. - DAVE HOLMES
