He must have thought very highly of his Grandfather to sell off his old watch for the price of a few beers.

That's an important, and historical piece. Presented by director John Ford to Henry Fonda in 1939 as a wrap gift for Drums Along the Mohawk.

An incredibly rare, early Rolex "electro" day date. Value should be in six figures.

What's more impressive is that it appearantly has been at the bottom of a lake for many years prior to it being found. Still a turd

If the seller could read, he'd know the movement was Harley Ronda. A rather well known Swiss watch movement company.
