£0.00GBP
vws0481

An Absolutely Beautiful "Officers" Trench Watch from Wilsdorf & Davis (Rolex) with a Stunning White Dial and Signed and Hallmarked Solid Silver Case, Dated c.1915. 

These early wristwatches made of precious metals became known as “Officers” trench watches as the standard watches given to soldiers were usually made of non-precious metals, officers would therefore often order their own watches from an outfitter of choice.

If you are after a great vintage watch from the World War 1 era, that will also be a conversation starter and looks superb, then this one is a real gem. 

What’s On Offer 

An absolutely charming WW1 silver Rolex Officers (Trench) watch, steeped in history, The Wilsdorf & Davis (Rolex) signed silver case, is hallmarked London and dated c.1915. This watch has a large 33mm polished silver round case that looks great on the wrist with the original pumpkin crown, hinged bezel, and back allowing you to see the fantastic Marconi Lever self-winding movement in working condition. Considering this watch is over a century old and may have seen WW1 active service, it is still keeping good time and in great working condition.

The dial of this watch not only looks superb with the white enamel, Arabic numerals, and recessed sub-seconds dial,  it is 100% original with only the smallest of hairline crazing near the 9 o’clock & 3 o’clock positions - barely visible to the naked eye and certainly nothing that takes away from the overall beauty of the piece.
