Rolex Oyster Royal Precision Ref. 6426 steel manual vintage wristwatch, dated 1963
This Rolex wristwatch is a manual wind model with a 35mm diameter case. An especially handsome example, the dial is in lovely condition with multi-faceted hour indexes. Unusually all the hour indexes are of equal size rather than allowing the quarter hours to dominate. Such an arrangement accentuates the applied Rolex crown emblem at 12 o’clock which is the only ‘numeral’ of difference. The stainless steel case has a smooth bezel and the screw-down case back is stamped for the year 1963.
