Watch & Clock Maker May 15th 1929 :

Watch & Clock Maker
May 15th 1929

This is a fascinating art-deco style Rolex ad from May of 1929, which means it was published 95 years ago!!! It is interesting to note they refer to what we refer to today as a wristwatch, as a wristlet. This ad was obviously published after the advent of the Rolex Oyster, but before the Oyster Perpetual. Notice the art-deco cushion case in the bottom left looks similar to an early Panerai.
