Steel Rolex Oyster Precision Ref. 6426 vintage wristwatch, dated 1961

A handsome stainless steel manually wound centre seconds wristwatch with original Rolex presentation box

This is a superb example of the 6426 reference which is in excellent condition for its age. The dial has acquired a very light and even patina that gives the surface a wonderful warmth, complimenting the gold coloured numerals and contrasting with the blued steel centre seconds hand. Interestingly, unlike the majority of Oyster models of the period, there are no luminescent accents to the numerals or hands. The stainless steel case retains excellent definition and has only 2 or 3 small indentations; the inside back is date stamped for 1961. The watch is accompanied by its original green Rolex presentation box which can be opened up to form a stand. We have fitted this watch with a new, Hirsch, tan coloured Camelgrain strap.
