This is a rare bird; a reference 6548, 1956 boys’ size ROLEX OYSTER PERPETUAL (30.5mm.) AUTOMATIC winding SUPER PRECISION in stainless steel! We rarely see these watch appear with an automatic movement; mainly manual winding watches surface. Add to this; the movement is adjusted to 5 positions for greater accuracy; hence, the super precision markings on the dial. Notice the red lettering “30m=165 ft.”…. also uncommon. We had this dial faithfully restored; while retaining the exact wording that appeared (and had faded). This dial looks spectacular in black; having raised markers, original steel, radium, Dauphine hands and sweep seconds. The ROLEX OYSTER screw-down winding crown glides perfectly. The stainless steel ROLEX OYSTER case is in fine shape for its’ age… very minor and usual marks. This case is the largest of the boys’ sized cases; as some were 29.5mm. It looks shimmering on the wrist! We’ve had the movement cleaned by our watchmaker recently; and it should run for many more decades! This ROLEX is made for a man; but is a perfect size for a woman!
