Rolex Oyster Precision Ref. 6426 steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1981

A stainless steel manually wound centre seconds wristwatch with grey dial and Rolex Oyster bracelet

This is a very handsome example of the classic Oyster Ref. 6426 which has a case diameter of 35mm. The watch has a smart, grey, satin finished dial – a colourway rarely found on this model. The dial is in great condition with a strong and rich tone. The stainless steel Rolex Oyster case has a smooth chamfered bezel and the watch is fitted with its original Rolex Oyster 78350 steel link bracelet. There are a three small indentations to the milling at the back of the case where the case back has been previously opened using an incorrect tool – the case and bracelet are otherwise in good condition. The 6.6 million serial number to the Oyster case and ‘F’ code to the bracelet both date the watch to 1981.
