This vintage1958 ROLEX OYSTER is quite rare to find these days.  The reference 5506 33mm. case is gold plated (as all these were) and only produced for the Canadian market.  The bullseye dial is completely un-touched and all original and retains the original dauphine hands and sweep seconds. Rolex experimented in CANADA with some interesting watches such as the ROLEX Metropolitan, Meritus, Explorer and Air-King; all having bullseye style dials.  This dial variation is the MOST striking and uncommon, having a creamy outer edge with black middle section. On the wrist and with the naked eye, the ageing on the outer edges is really not visible.  The automatic, original ROLEX movement was just cleaned and is accurately keeping time. What I find most interesting; is the revival of these bullseye dials, in the brand new ROLEX ref. 116200 Datejust model. This is “the real deal”!
