The Rolex of Captain M W DringDescription Brand: Rolex Style: Dress Gender/Size: Men Age: Pre-1920 Features: -- Here is one for the serious collectors. a very early Rolex knurled edge screw-back mans' wristwatch, in 9K PINK GOLD, dating from around 1915. The 15 Jewel signed Rolex Rebberg movement, with an engraved balance-cock, is Rhodium plated. The signed case is marked 'W & D', which I believe refers to Wilsdorf & Davis, the original proprietors of Rolex. The beautiful signed 3-piece Rolex case bears the number 622655, and is unusually fine condition. The ORIGINAL black enamel (porcelain) dial has a sunken sub-seconds register at 6 o'clock, full Arabic numerals, gold skeleton style hands (reluminised), and a GLASS crystal (not sure if original). The dial displays a little tracking damage around the 3 o'clock area, but this is not easily visible when the knurled edge glass bezel is screwed down. The winding crown is unsigned, and not thought to be original Rolex. This Rolex comes with some details of its' Provenance. It was purchased as new in 1915, and presented to Captain M W Dring by the Officers of the British regiment, 341 Company Abingdon (part of the 1st Indian Division). The case-back is engraved with the details, and the watch comes with additional paperwork, giving the career history of Captain Dring, with a 1918 extract from the London Gazette, indicating his being awarded the Military cross, and another 1914 Military log extract. The movement is running well and the balance is sound, & the watch keeps most acceptable time for a timepiece of this age. It has recently had the benefit of a professional polish. The case is in fine condition, with no splits, dings or dents. The watch is on fixed lugs, and a new open-ended Black reptile-leather strap has been fitted, with a Gilt buckle.
