Rolex Oyster 1959

Here is a 34.5mm. stainless steel (scratchless) and gleaming cased 1959 ROLEX OYSTER PRECISION with original dial! The suntanned dial is spectacular and quite desirable! This dial would have been originally black; and was worn regularly in the blazing Australian sun (where we purchased it) causing a chocolatey and crazed pattern over the decades! These tanned dials are highly sought after due to their unmistakable original condition and vintage appeal! The print is still vibrant and clear. The Dauphine hands, sweep seconds and raised markers are also in their original state. This highly reliable ROLEX manual winding movement is accurate after a recent clean and overhaul and should run for many more decades. The bright mirror-like case is beautiful; having polished bezel, ROLEX OYSTER winding crown and OYSTER screw back… all very fine. Rolex often used case backs from similar watches; as can be seen with this case, either a reference 6426 or 6427. This was a common practice in the 50’s and 60’s. As you can see on the case back; this watch was manufactured in the first quarter of 1959. We have installed a lizard band, which completes the overall look. On the wrist; all eyes will be drawn!
