Rolex Oyster Precision

As you well know by now, we have a passion for timepieces with tradition, style and value. When these elements combine, an icon is formed, and it is hard to get more iconic than the brand with the big crown - Rolex.

When you think of Rolex, your first thoughts may be to their unforgettable GMT Master with its two-tone "Pepsi" bezel, the aviator's timepiece designed with Pan-Am pilots and transatlantic jet flights in mind. Or it might go to the form-follows-function Explorer I, the watch designed for mountaineers and tested under the most extreme conditions on earth. But it probably goes to the Submariner, the legendary diver by which all others are measured.

There's no denying that a Rolex Submariner is one of the most iconic watches of the last 60 years, but the same can easily be said about its diminutive siblings in the Oyster series. Designed for everyday wear, these timepieces were made as high grade affordable gentleman's watches in an era when owning a Swiss watch from any brand - never mind a Rolex - was a privilege far fewer could attain than today.

With perfect portions, a robust manually winding movement and timeless styling, the Oyster may simply be the most versatile and wearable watches ever designed. This particular model, an Oyster Precision Reference 6426, dates from approximately 1972 and features a classic 35mm steel Oyster case, crisp silver sunburst dial and a smooth steel bezel.  

What can't be discerned from the photos is just how thin the Precisions are - making them incredibly slim and comfortable watches to wear, and the perfect accessories for dressing up your wrist under a cuff. Whether paired up with a suede strap, a full-grain leather, a nylon or its original metal bracelet, this is one vintage Rolex that will certainly catch the eye of true vintage enthusiasts, particularly in a room full of sports watches!
