Help me Identify this Watch?

I came across this ladies' watch while cleaning out my grandparents' house. There are items from four generations in this house so I really have no idea how old this watch might be, although I have spent an hour or so researching around the internet.

There's an album of pictures of the watch at http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v2...ntage%20watch/, but here are the markings I've found:

On the back of the case is a swirly engraved logo and the numbers 9-4-25.

I carefully opened the case and these are the markings from inside the back:
R.W.C.Ltd
What I think is the 'F' and reversed 'F' for the Glasgow assay office, and a lowercase letter 'a'
9.375 running vertically
ROLEX
7 WORLD'S RECORDS
GOLD MEDAL
GENEVA-SUISSE
3889

A mark on the side of the metal strap reads 9c C.D.B.

Any and all information would be appreciated!
Sherry

P.S. If I should post the pictures directly into this thread, please let me know. I thought linking to the album would be more efficient but I'm happy to do either.

There's been a suggestion that the movement might be from 1919-1920. The watch winds up and runs beautifully, but the hands don't move. I'm assuming that sort of thing could be fixed by a competent repairer?

Yes it can be done , it's a twenties ladies dress watch.

None of the Rolex movements are difficult to service , except some BB movements which can me more difficult though not impossible.
