Original two page Swiss magazine advertisement from the year 1947 for Rolex Watch Company, Geneva, Switzerland (Montres Rolex S.A., Geneve, Suisse). The advertisement was carefully removed from a Swiss magazine. The ad is comprised of two separate pages.

Main text on the ad is in Englisg.

The tiny text at the very top of the page reads: "The fascinating story of the self-winding watch." The text headline to the "story" shown in the ad reads: "Self-winding watches in crinoline days."

[Please note: this is a magazine advertisement / magazine clipping only; no watch, clock, parts or tools are included.]

Each page measures approximately 7 5/8 inches wide by 10 1/4 inches high (including margins, if any). The ad is comprised of two separate pages.

There are some small bends on the pages.

As with most vintage ads, there may be yellowing to the paper due to age and may be some small bends, light wear/edge wear. (Any significant damage or wear is noted above. Light wear and minor imperfections are to be expected.) [The images shown are of the actual ad offered for sale.]

The advertisement was carefully removed directly from a magazine.
