Vintage Rolex Precision – 34mm

Before Rolex began developing tool watches as we know them today, i.e. the Submariner, GMT Master, and Explorer II, adventurers and professionals relied on the mighty Oyster Perpetual to provide a reliable reading in tough terrains.

An Oyster watch famously accompanied Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay as they made their historic summit of Mount Everest. The Oyster Perpetual has always been celebrated for its durable exterior, boasting an Oyster case that is waterproof up to 100 meters.

This vintage ref. 6285 boasts the Oyster case, which is topped with a handsome steel bezel and a protective crystal over the dial. The dial itself is full of history and character and is topped with older-style hour markers and sword hands in yellow gold. You won’t regret adding this handsome vintage reference to your Rolex collection.

The watch functions as it should but will need to be serviced for accurate timekeeping.
