DID SIZE MATTER IN WWII ERA

THE CORPORAL WHO
COULD AND WOULD

On 10 March 1943, while  a prisoner of war, lowly [comparded w/officers] Corporal Clive James Nutting, one of the organizers of the Great Escape, ordered a stainless steel Rolex Oyster 3525 Chronograph (current equivalent 1,200) by mail directly from Hans Wilsdorf in Geneva. He infortmed Hans Wilsdorf he intended on paying for it with money he saved working as a shoemaker at the camp. The watch (Rolex watch no. 185983) was delivered to Stalag Luft III on 10 July that year along with a note from In a note Wilsdorf apologized for any delay in processing the order and explained that an English gentleman such as Corporal Nutting "should not even think" about paying for the watch before the end of the war. Wilsdorf is reported to have been impressed with Nutting because, although not an officer, he had ordered the expensive Rolex 3525 Oyster chronograph while most other prisoners ordered the much cheaper Rolex Speed King model which was ****popular because of its small size. The watch is believed to have been ordered specifically to be used in the Great Escape when, as a chronograph, it could have been used to time patrols of prison guards or time the 76 ill-fated escapees through tunnel 'Harry' on 24 March 1944.
