    Hi
    Just relocated my grandmother's watch from the 1920?
    Any information on it would be appreciated.
    It looks very like a WW1 9ct gold ladies Rolex watch, 1914 but I can't find any exactly the same on the web.
    The measures 25.2mm diameter excluding the winding crown and the lugs.
    I hope the pictures are useful?
    Thanks

    Welcome,

    Rolex? I see nothing on the watch that says Rolex to me. If it was a Rolex, the trade mark inside the case back should be W & D for Wilsdorf and Davis. By about 1910, I think Davis and Wilsdorf had parted. But I have a sterling cased Rolex hallmarked 1915 that has the W & D trade mark in the case back. How is it that the subject watch says Rolex to you? The firm was outsourcing movements around that time, and the movement doesn't look to me as one i recognize that Rolex used.
