Rare 1918 solid gold Rolex wristwatch at Canberra Antiques Fair

Rob Dennis of China Bound in Victoria is known for his array of “boys’ toys”, including weaponry and war memorabilia. For the Canberra Antiques and Vintage Fair, Rob has a very special piece: a rare 1918 Rolex watch solid gold (both case and band) in its original box from Lucerne. The watch is in excellent condition and is a fine example of the first model of wrist watch Rolex produced (they started producing pocket watches in 1908). It was presented to an Australian soldier on his return from France in 1919.
