This 1956 Rolex Oyster Meritus 34mm., (43.2mm. lug to lug) all original, with gold plated case, reference 6594 and is VERY clean with only a slight bit of (barely visible) wear on the high edge of the lugs. The original Rolex automatic butterfly style caliber 1030 (adjusted to five positions) movement is keeping accurate time after a recent cleaning. The original 6594 reference case back is stainless steel. The original ROLEX OYSTER winding crown screws down like silk. Notice the original Dauphine hands and correct blued steel sweep seconds. The dial is (importantly) absolutely original; in two-tone bulls-eye and curved print—WOW! The ROLEX OYSTER MERITUS is a variety made ONLY for the Canadian market and is EXTREMELY uncommon to find these days. We think they watches were ONLY produced for ONE YEAR, based on the fact that 1956 is the ONLY year we have found them. We are just not finding these AT ALL as of late. These watches look quite large on the wrist due to their extended lugs. For the Rolex collector… get one while you can.
