Rolex Tru-Beat

SOLD!

Click on picture above…more detail will appear

This is a very rare ROLEX OYSTER PERPETUALTRU-BEAT reference 6556 (between lugs) and 6558 (case back). The case back dates to 1961, with a matching 731xxx 1961 serial number between the lugs. Notice the TRU-BEAT elongated and this steel markers, thin hands, extra-long minute markers and extremely rare and original arrow-pointed sweep seconds. This dial is completely original and correct to this watch. Rolex produced this watch under the METROPOLITAN name and also with the name TRU-BEAT omitted. This watch was purchased from the original owner. when we purchased it, the crystal was so hazed over I could not even see the dial! The 34.5mm. stainless steel case was in wonderfully preserved condition and only needed a very slight hand polish. Our ROLEX approved watchmaker replaced the crystal and winding crown with original parts and fully overhauled and cleaned the automatic winding caliber 1040 B movement. Now onto the movement. The deadbeat seconds parts at one time were removed from this watch. Often watchmakers did not realize what they were for and removed them.
