Hi there.

I'm posting this up hoping that someone here can give me some info regarding this watch. It's going up for sale at a local auction. I'm interested because of the age and the brand but I can't make any claims to having a clue about Rolex's.

I've only snapped the one picture so I know that might limit the info you can give me.


It is engraved on the case back 1952. It doesn't run, feels to be fully wound. Pulling the crown out allows the time to be set.
The crown won't screw in and the thread on the case is worn flat on the underside.
The auction house has valued it at $300-500. I'm curious, if it is genuine, if it would be worth the purchase price vs the possible repair price.

Any info you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Legit I think but the value is limited. Servicing might be expensive depending on what is needed and I'd be cautious with bidding. For USD 300 is might just be a nice buy at USD 700 it certainly is not.
