Looks like the inner case-back has Rolex' mark. Can you also post a movement photo?

The dial looks like radium to me, if so please be careful where you open that watch not to be exposed to the dust.These watches have many enthusiasts and members would post more qualified replies.

Here is photo of internal, it indicates 17 rubies, Swiss Made and also 50 is inscribed. The internal of Stainless cover has inscribed Oyster Watch Co and Geneva -Swiss, further down RWC Ltd.
Hope this helps to identify watch etc.

I never saw a watch like this
For certain it is an early Rolex Piece
Rolex patented the "Oyster" in 1926.
They registered the name 'Lincoln' i 1928

BUT the movement is not an Aegler/Rolex movement that I know.
Maybe this is a Fontainmellon movement for Cnadian market.

Whatever
FANTASTIC, rare and valuable piece.
I would like to own it.

Cool Robbie
That makes sense.
We are not allowed to give valuations here.
But do an advanced search on Ebay (completed listings/World Wide) for Canadian Rolex. Or Rolex Lipton, or Rolex observatory
