Rolex Oysterdate Precision - 1966

Rolex Oysterdate Precision - 1966

You may have noticed that 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.

When you think of Rolex, your first thoughts may be to their GMT Master with its unforgettable two-tone "Pepsi" bezel, the aviator's timepiece designed at the dawn of transatlantic jet travel. 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 revered watches of the last 60 years, but the same can easily be said about its 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 proportions, robust movements, and timeless styling, the Oyster series might just be the most versatile and wearable watches ever designed. This particular model, an Oysterdate Precision Reference 6694, dates from approximately 1966 and features a classic 34mm steel Oyster case, silver sunburst dial and a smooth steel bezel. Replete with terrific gold hands and hour markers, this piece checks all the right boxes for both the beginner enthusiast and experience collector alike.

This is vintage Rolex perfection in its purest form, don't miss it!
