Rolex 6542 with Bakelite bezel

I asked the same question on RolexForums, someone suggested I post here.

Newbie question:
I have discovered one of these in a box of old family watches (I suspect it belonged to my great uncle). I was going to get a strap and wear it having worked out the function of it's 24 hour hand (useful to me since I'm a pilot). But having done a little googling and ended up here I see that it's too good for that. It seems to be in very good condition compared to some pictures I have seen. Since it has been in a box for several decades I doubt it has any non-original parts.

Serial number on outside of case is 3222xx

I like it but I do not share the passion of some here!

My question:
Who in the UK can I take it to for checking and to verify it's the real thing

Where R U in the UK?

There's a few of us scattered around. I'm in Southport (north-west England), but there are other good people out there who can happily verify the authenticity and originality of your watch.

I assume you mean the Goodwood Revival .... I don't think I will be there
On an airfield but not aviation friendly unless you have an old/interesting aircraft.
Mine is old enough to be scruffy but not old enough to be antique
I'm sure there is a Roles equivalent.
