ROCK HAS RESTORED JUST ABOUT EVERY TRENCH WATCH MADE FROM 1914 THRU 1925. MANY COMPANY BRANDS THAT SHOW UP DID NOT PRODUCE TRENCH WATCHES UNTIL LATE INTO THE WAR.  IN FACT ROLEX IS ONE OF THOSE BRANDS WHO PROFITED AT THE END OF THE WAR BY MAKING IT SEEM THEY WERE GROUND BREAKERS DURING THE WAR. THE  FACT SIMPLY DISPROVE THIS:

HANS WILSDORF,  FOUNDER OF MARCONI AND ROLEX, REGISTERED/PATENTED THE
MARCONI NAME IN JANUARY 1911 AND PRODUCED MARCONI WATCHES  BEFORE REGISTERING/PATENTING THE ROLEX NAME ON THE 15 OF NOVEMBER 1915. OUR MARCONI TUDOR ROLEX ESSAY W/PICTURES ON EBAY

ROLEX BRAND PRODUCTION BEGAN IN 1916 AND DID NOT PARTICIPATE IN TRENCH WATCH PRODUCTION UNTIL 1917/18. OF BOTH BRANDS, IT WAS THE  THE MARCONI NAME THAT DOMINATED THE MARKET. THE  ROLEX BRAND BEGAN AS AN UNKNOWN IN 1916.   THUS MANY OF THE "ROLEX TRENCH" WATCHES  WE FIND WERE MADE AFTER WW1.

WHY DO MOST LOOK IMMACULATE? BECAUSE THEY NEVER SERVED IN A WAR... SO, WHEN INVESTING LEARN THE NAMES OF THE BRANDS THAT MADE THE TRENCH WATCH FAMOUS, SUCH AS A GEORGE STOCKWELL OR WILLIAM HENRY SPARROW. AND, LOOK FOR DATE, ASSAY AND IMPORT HALLMARKS.  MANY CAME THROUGH BIRMINGHAM AND OTHER IMPORT CITIES IN BRITAIN/ENGLAND
