In the 1920s and 30s, Rolex has numerous secondary brands, similar to what the Tudor brand is today. One of those brands was the Unicorn. You may find these wrist and pocket watches with an unsigned dial, but Unicorn signed movement, For those of you unfamiliar with the name Unicorn, please see Cooksey Shugart's Complete Price Guide to Watches. At the back of the Rolex section is a partial list of brands that Rolex once distributed, as Rolex either set up or bought subsidiary companies with names like Bucherer, Marconi, Rolco, Genex, Unicorn.

This Unicorn watch was produced by RWAG (Rolex Watch AG) Germany was subsidiary company of Rolex Watch Company (RWC). IN 1960'S Unicorn watch was no longer under Rolex SA

  1. Does this mean that the "Unicorn" watches would cost a lot today?
