    Interesting vintage issued Rolex pocket watch

    I found this in Cheltenham today,if the dial was better I may well have bought it.

    Looks to be a standard GSTP to me, price is strong, but the R brand attracts a premium.
    I think the JLC GSTP is a better watch in looks and movement as the Rolex used bought in off the shelf movements. JLC did not. (I would say that as a JLC is my only pocket watch)
    The dial looks like a really bad relume.
    I would have passed on it as well.

    Very strong money unless it was fitted with a Cal 618 movement - which I doubt.

    ...

    GS is pre-WWII and GSTP is WWII era, but mostly had the same movements.
