Rolex Oyster Royal Precision Ref. 6426 steel vintage wristwatch, dated 1963
A stainless steel manually wound centre seconds wristwatch
Reference 6426 is a handsome manually wound Rolex model with a case diameter of 35mm. This example has a silvered satin finished dial that is in lovely condition, with multi-faceted triangular numerals which are of equal size around the dial; this design does not allow the quarters at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock to dominate and instead accentuates the Rolex crown emblem at the 12 o’clock position, it being the only hour index of differing design. The stainless steel Rolex Oyster case has a smooth polished bezel and the case back is date stamped for the first quarter of 1963.
As part of this watch’s service and overhaul it has been pressure tested for water-resistance for depths up to 100 metres.
