This is a rare Antique Rolex Oyster with sweep seconds movement in cushion case circa 1930. This was likely a military officer’s or doctor’s watch, sweep seconds were made in much smaller quantity than sub seconds and were for specialised use. This is a very early version of an Oyster case with screw back and screw down crown and reference number 3351f, it is signed inside “Oyster Watch Co” and also has the Rolex “SAR” mark, reputed to mean Société Anonyme Rolex.
