    case diameter is about 32mm. case is 40mm from lug to lug. a piece of rolex and watchmaking history-the first practical self-winding watch. rare in this condition with an original dial.

    Reference number on the watch is 2940, correct for the era and for a bubbleback. The outer case back is new old stock and the case back still has the rolex handwritten notes affixed.
