Rolex Oysterdate 6294 form 1954

Description

SOLD!

Look at this ALL ORIGINAL, first version, vintage and early ROLEX OYSTERDATE reference 6294 from 1954! This is the earliest ROLEX OYSTERDATE we have owned…. all original, including the “greenish-yellow” aged and mellowed dial having raised, gold coloured, triangular markers, “roulette” date aperture (alternating red to black numbers), sweep seconds and Dauphine style hands. This watch came from Australia where the intense sun ages dials just marvelously…adding to their character, desirability and originality. The 34mm. stainless steel signed ROLEX OYSTER case showing the 54 (meaning 1954) manufacture date is shimmering, ding and scratch free…all caseback knurling is very fine. This version of the manual winding ROLEX movement was very robust and relaible… fewer parts were present (opposed to an automatic movement) reducing repair costs and reliability. This particular, original movement was recently cleaned and overhauled… keeping accurate time..should run for decades to come! Keep in mind…most of these early dials have been refinished… greatly reducing the value of these watches.
