Rolex Oyster Royal Ref. 6444 steel vintage wristwatch, dated 1956

A stainless steel manually wound wristwatch with Oyster bracelet and ‘big logo’ buckle

A really great looking mid-sized Oyster model, this watch has a lovely honeycomb textured dial with contrasting gilded hour indexes and hands. The steel case has a classic smooth chamfered bezel and the watch is fitted to a stainless steel Rolex Oyster riveted link bracelet. Most unusually this watch features the rarely seen and highly collectible ‘big logo’ clasp which was made for a short period only. Unlike standard Rolex clasps the Rolex logo fills almost the entire surface of the clasp and has a highly distinctive design. The clasp is date stamped for the year 1959 and the watch is date coded for 1956.
