Hi
looks like model 6106 or 6108. Introduced in the 50s
Take a look between the top lugs, it should have the model number.
Between bottom lugs is serial number for dating.

I agree with Adam..

and want to add that the dial on the watch is want we call an early "Explorer dial" with the 3-6-9 number configuration. The dial numbers made it easy to read in low visibility conditions. I would say this watch can be classified under sport watch category.
Similar watches as the one posted were worn by mountaineers of that time period for extreme use.

I see one screw on the rotor has gone..
Nope, that is one of the greatest misunderstandings of Rolex.
Only one screw is EVER used.
Below the rotor there are 5 screw holes, when you wind the rotor onto the shaft only 1 screw hole will line up snugly, and that is the one the the retainer screw goes into.
Its a VERY smart idea, as you can not know exactly where the rotor will stip when screwed down onto shaft, but with 5 holes below, one ALWAYS lines up.

Nothing missing, two screws means a bodged repair.
