War, Rolexi, and classice movies. Quite a combo.

A 1940s Rolex chronograph that belonged to a British prisoner of war at the Stalag Luft III camp in Nazi Germany is coming up for sale at Antiquorum in Geneva on May 13 and 14. With it is the logbook Corporal Clive Nutting of the Royal Corps of Signals kept during his wartime captivity. It’s a collection of unpublished cartoons, illustrations and photographs revealing a new insight into camp life and the mass breakout of 76 POWs made famous in the movie, The Great Escape.

  1. Can’t believe there are no comments on this awesome watch, which has a very interesting story to go with it.

    That thing looks brand new, even back in the 40’s Rolex made watches anybody would want today in 2007.
