BEWARE, only a few Rolex's were produced with the Eaton's name SOLAR (Less than3%) and extremely rare and highly sought after by collector's , very few are in fact Rolex and most are ETA or Felsa  cheap movements DO  NOT be fooled!.  ON EBAY you must ask for the watch to be opened to see the TUDOR name or ROLEX name or if it is too cheap then the seller knows something you don't. DO NOT get greedy and remember... you get what you pay for!.

tid bit of info for you :-)

Ever wonder what a cap jewel is or an "Inca bloc shock system is all about?"

A cap jewel you will find on both sides of the balance wheel staff (pivot)  and this piece (cap jewel) is under a very small spring that closes down on the jewel but lets it float a little so if G-d forbid you drop your watch the balance staff that fits right underneath it will move up and down a fraction so it will not snap as the cap jewel is held in by the small inca bloc spring as mentioned just before. You have a small friction jewel just under the cap jewel and this small friction jewel has a hole in the center and this is where the balance staff goes into, to keep the balance straight and the cap jewel is flat on the balance staff side and rounded on top so the Inca bloc spring keeps a it snug in place but will let it move a fraction of a mm to give the staff protein from falls. Without an Inca bloc system on both plates of the balance if the watch is dropped there is no give and the balance will snap in half and you are looking at a major repair job.

The bracelet as mentioned has been repaired and in darn clean condition as the scans show you clearly. There are 13 links. The fold over clasp is original and closes perfectly.

The crystal is new and from my Rolex stock of Rolex crystals (I have 500 or so in stock).

This is an automatic movement and I have freshly serviced this Rolex 1560 movement to perfection. On the rotor plate it does read "adjusted 5 positions".

personnel note... You know what kills me about this 1560 movement? I see them on EBay for 1500-- to 3500K ONLY for the movement no case or band not serviced sold as is, and here you can buy the complete serviced original watch for the same money. Makes you wonder about EBay doesn't it??? And G-D forbid a year down the road you need it serviced, EBay sellers will say too bad for you, where Darlor we take care of it ASAP!

October 7, 1927. It was a cold October morning, and Miss Mercedes Gleitze (1900-1981), a London typist and part-time professional swimmer from Brighton, was about to make her eighth attempt at swimming the English Channel. Just a year prior (on July 29, 1926), Rolex patented the first waterproof wristwatch: the Rolex Oyster. When Hans Wilsdorf (the cofounder and Managing Director of Rolex) got word of the vindication swim, he saw this as a golden opportunity to promote his new creation. Wilsdorf wasted no time, and on October 14, dispatched a letter to Miss Gleitze by way of the S. T. Garland advertising service. By this letter, he formally agreed to provide her with a gift wristlet watch to be worn during the upcoming swim. In exchange, Gleitze would provide a written testimonial on the performance of the watch after the swim.

It may sound a bit more romantic to say that Mercedes wore a Rolex on her wrist as she swam across the English Channel, but this, unfortunately, was not the case. While she did “carry” a Rolex for more than ten hours during her vindication swim, it was not on her wrist, nor was it during the “successful” fifteen-hour swim she is remembered for. This is simply a story that has had some “specifics” misquoted over the years. With that being said, on October 25, 1927, Mercedes Gleitze forwarded a letter to Rolex, which summed it up very well, and read as follows: “You will like to hear that the Rolex Oyster watch I carried on my Channel swim proved itself a reliable and accurate timekeeping companion even though it was subjected to complete immersion for hours in sea water at a temp of not more than 58 and often as low as 51. This is to say nothing about the sustained buffeting it must have received. Not even the quick change to the high temp of the boat cabin when I was lifted from the water seemed to affect the even tenour of its movement. The newspaper man was astonished and I, of course, am delighted with it…”

Again, while Mercedes was unsuccessful on her vindication swim, the significance of this feat was not lost on Rolex, as it heavily promoted it in its now-famous London Daily Mail front-page advertisement on November 24, of that same year “Rolex introduces for the first time the greatest triumph in Watch-making – ROLEX ‘OYSTER’ – The Wonder Watch That Defies The Elements. MOISTURE PROOF WATER PROOF HEAT PROOF VIBRATION PROOF COLD PROOF DUST PROOF”
