    Help with a Vintage Rolex

    Hello everyone,

    I need help identifying this ladies Rolex. All in can tell about it is it is a Lades watch in Rose Gold/Stainless Steel with "Cartier" on the dial.

    Feedback on age and collectors appeal/value would be greatly appreciated!

    The serial number would date it to 1942.
    Sorry we never give valuations here. Please read our sticky notes for reasons why. As to collector's appeal, ladies' watches are in general less collectible, but it is a Rolex.

    Whats the mm size of the case?I dont think its a ladies watch but a boy size rolex... the size we know today as a mid size...men wore much smaller time pieces in this period and if its 1942 then Rolex cut back its production during the war and the Royal line was one line that i dont remember having ladies watches included.

    I don´t think it is a ladies watch. At those times men wear those sizes. Ladies watches have been more tiny - even if Rolex made them.
    Those Rolex Oyster Royal have been made for some other companies too, like Cartier (as to be seen here), Bucherer, Philippe Beguin/Geneva.

    Quite intersesting that some of those came with different names: Army, Royal, Imperial, Junior Sport, some with Mercedes hands, some without.

    You got a very nice and rare time piece. Enjoy.

    Thanks for the information!
    Based on size i was thinking ladies but it makes sense that is it's a mid size man's watch.
    I'll measure it when i get a chance... I guess i should have done that before i posted the questions!

    thanks,
