c.1969 Rolex Oyster Precision Model Reference 6426 with a Rolex Calibre 1210 movement - Silver brushed textured dial.

Rolex offered Oyster Precision watches from the early 1950s to the late 1970s, with several different dials and movements. The Rolex Oyster Precision is one of the few Rolex watches equipped with a hand-wound mechanical movement. Rolex watches not only became the watches worn by the most influential people, they were also put to the test in the most extreme situations. Sir Malcolm Campbell wore one while breaking land speed records in Bluebell in 1935, as did the first pilot to break the sound barrier in 1947.

Sir Edmund Hillary wore an Oyster Perpetual on the first ever summit of Everest in 1953, and this extraordinary feat began a series of Professional models, the first of which was the Oyster Perpetual Explorer, based on the model Hillary wore. The present watch, an Oyster Precision ref. 6426 circa 1969 channels the importance of Rolex’s effect on history in wonderful style and elegance.

The smooth bezel beautifully wrapping around the 34mm stainless steel case makes this watch a perfect size for either a man or women. Baton indices and an excellent ever popular rivet bracelet finishes the package off and cements the presence of this timepiece on your wrist.

What's on offer

The lugs remain sharp and characteristic of the quality of Rolex’s reputation of making long lasting and iconic wristwatches whilst the brushed steel effect dial subtly exudes a class you can only find on a watch of this stature. The condition of the case is remarkable along with the crisp dial which retains all the key attributes that makes this reference Rolex so popular and proves to be a timeless piece of design and quality. The watch is supplied recently serviced and running strong, accurately and well.
