Rolex Oyster Precision

Why We Love It

For the man of taste but not of means, the Rolex Oyster Precision presents a value proposition that’s hard to argue with—even today.

With perfect portions, timeless styling, and a plethora of dial options, the Oyster Precision is, quite simply, one of the most versatile dress watches Rolex ever produced. This particular model, a Reference 6424, dates from approximately 1964. The silver sunburst dial with dart markers is stunning, an elegant counterpart to the austerity of the manufacture’s sports watches.

Another added bonus is the 20mm lugs, which make strap changes a breeze, further adding to the versatility of this excellent watch.

The Story

Despite the success of Rolex’s sports models, they were not the manufacture’s sole focus of production. Throughout the 20th century, Rolex released dress watches with elegant dials housed in the famous Oyster case. At a lower price point, they stood outside the Crown’s more elite dress watches such as the Datejust or the Day-Date.

Known as the Oyster Precision line, they served as an entry point for consumers into the world of Rolex.

Simple, elegant, yet no less sturdy than their sporty counterparts, they remain just as handsome today as they were when they were created.
