My father left me a vintage Rolex and I was wondering what its worth. Here's what I know about it:

He purchased it sometime in the early 1950s.
It's not the original band.
It still runs! Amazing for a 60 year old watch.

Thanks for your help.

This a difficult watch to give an estimate on...

The negative aspect regarding this watch is that in my opinion the dial is redone. As we all know, in the world of Rolex vantage watches an original dial in can add easily up to 50% to the watches value, and subtract just as much.

Around $500-700 for the sum of the parts for your running watch. A rolex collector looking for a watch from that era, and might have the correct dial, would mybe do better then the appraisal I came up with.

I hope that can help you a little, Arthur
