This gold men's Rolco watch belonged to my grandfather, who died in 1942. I have managed to date it to around late 1920's/early 1930's but please correct me if I'm wrong!
I found it tucked away in the back of a bureau drawer when my grandmother died, and I have yet to find anything resembling this anywhere on the internet, although I have tried for quite some time now. I live in Australia now, having emigrated from the UK 13 years ago, so it's been difficult to find anyone out here who could help me with it.
It is in very good condition, and I couldn't believe it when I wound it up and it starting ticking straight away. I believe he would have worn it as a 'dress' watch so it would not have had the wear and tear of everyday usage.
I would be interested if anyone had any further information about this watch as it is quite unusual
The solid wristband is different to anything I've seen yet
Just a beautiful watch and so good that it's working well too!
