    Default Opinions pls appreciated - 1920's gents Rolex solid silver cushion cased watch

    An impulse buy but no regrets...I recently bought a stunning 1920's gents solid silver, full-size cushion case watch. I decided to have it serviced, by a specialist vintage ARD, so now it is eminently wearable, keeping good time, has a two-year guarantee, and of course,is looking marvellous! The watch was clean when I bought it, with no dents to the case, and a clean black leather strap in the correct timescale type. Someone has looked after it well. As far as we can tell, no major parts have been replaced, nor has the dial been refinished or re-painted. Rather than describe what it looks like, the photos will show all. I am wondering if someone experienced in (very) vintage watches could give an assessment of its probable value, so that I can see how much of a loss I may well have made financially...or even possibly a small profit!?
    Whatever the case may be (sorry lol), I love this beauty, it is a prime example of a watch of its time and quality, still looks amazing, and as it works well, it is even contributing towards its keep :-D
    Many thanks for any and all opinions, neg or pos...

    Nice watch, but American movements of that era were the best timekeepers on the planet, especially railroads.

    I miss the classiness of vintage typography. Contemporary dial and bezel fonts feel so clinical.
