A 14ct gold vintage Rolex Oyster Perpetual or 'Bubble Back' watch. The case measures 32 x 38 mm., with a Thunderbird style bezel. The case is signed Rolex Geneva Swiss, 14K, ref: 5015. The movement is signed Rolex Perpetual Chronometer Swiss Made with the 'Rolex Oyster' signed button. The dial has gold Arabic numerals with an outside minute track and centre seconds. The dial is signed Rolex Oyster Perpetual above the centre, with Officially Certified Chronometer below.

The 'Bubble Back' was the first completely watertight automatic watch developed by Rolex. It was named the 'Oyster Perpetual'. The self-winding movement was quite thick and the rounded case back was made to house it rather than the original Oyster case. This gave the name the'Bubble Back'. Rolex only produced this watch from 1933 - 1955.
