Evenin' all! A little earlier, by way of relaxation, I opened up my box of assorted watch parts. I bought a small job lot of bits from the Bay place about a month ago but haven't really properly scrutinised everything that came. Thus it was, as I studied the various movements with a loupe that I found a largely complete movement with the mark 'REBBERG DEPOSE'. Naturally, I Googled this and found not a lot but there was a reference to Rebberg and Rolex in one particular article. Heart skips beat! In a item in the Rolex Magazine Blogspot I found this illustration: If you compare that illustration with a pic I just took of my movement you'll see the similarities, albeit that mine is differently handed - not quite a mirror image. Clearly mine is missing the barrel wheel and screw that might have had the Rolex name on it. Bah! Also a couple of bridge screws. The dial side is lacking the 'wheel in the middle' whatever it's properly called but the keyless work seems complete. Does anyone have any further info about Rebbergs and an insight into how likely it is that this might be an early Rolex. I'm grasping at straws here I know but what fun if it were! Cheers John
