Rolex Oysterdate Precision Ref.6694 steel vintage wristwatch dated 1965
A stainless steel manually wound centre seconds wristwatch with date and Rolex Oyster bracelet
Reference 6694 is a classic vintage Oyster model that Rolex first introduced in 1959. The present example is relatively early in the model’s production run and is date stamped for the year 1965. The dial has a bright silvered satin finish and is set 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 ‘numeral’ of differing design. The case retains good definition with a pronounced chamfer to the bezel. Fitted to the original Rolex Oyster riveted link bracelet with adjustable folding clasp, there is only light stretch to the links and the clasp is date stamped for 1965.
As part of this watch’s service and overhaul it has been pressure tested for water resistance for depths up to 100 metres.Technical details
