1929 Rolex Oyster Polo Ad Malayan Saturday Post



1929 Rolex Oyster Polo Ad
Malayan Saturday Post
December 14, 1929

In 1927, Rolex shocked the world when they became the very first company on Earth to bring a waterproof watch to market in the form of the Rolex Oyster, which is seen below in the art-deco Rolex ad.  Today we take waterproof watches for granted, but back in 1927 this was a huge game-changer. The Rolex ad seen below is fascinating in many ways. In particular, it is so interesting to see how Rolex advertised watches for the Malaysian market Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
