Movement: Mechanical: Hand-winding
This is a stunningly original, superb example of a highly collectible, rare, and desirable Rolex  from the the pinnacle of their production. 

This watch is a 9 karat gold 2-piece cushion Oyster, model number 2416, case number 38046, produced in 1936.  The dial is signed "Rolex Oyster Royal" at the top and "Swiss Made & Fab. Suisse" below the subsidiary seconds dial.  It has luminous full Arabic numerals and original "Mercedes" hands, in perfect condition.  The movement is the highest quality version of the famous Rolex 10 1/2 hunter calibre, the "Ultra Prima" with 18 jewels, and is signed "Chronometre" and "Timed 6 Positions".  The case is solid 9k yellow gold with a screw back bearing the numbers shown above on the outside (along with the previously unknown letter "F" stamped between them) and solid strap bars.  The watch measures 28mm across and takes a 16mm strap.  A gorgeous, new hand-made crocodile strap befitting this watch has been added.  The watch is running very strongly.

This watch was purchased directly from James Dowling, author of "The Best of Time, Rolex Wristwatches: An Unauthorized History," which is the definitive guide to Rolex watches, and comes with a Certificate of Originality produced and signed by Mr. Dowling.

Don't miss the chance to own this incredibly rare, beautiful, and highly desirable Rolex.  You will not see another like it.
