Rolex 6694 Oysterdate Precision

The Rolex 6694 Oysterdate Precision is a superb example of the classically styled gents Rolex watch – at 34mm it’s also suitable for a ladies’ wrist if you like a larger than the standard diameter.

Let’s start by saying that this watch is very rare – there are a lot of Oysterdate Precision watches out there but there are very few with this colouring and even fewer as an all-original Full Set.

This watch is 43 years old this year but it’s still in excellent condition. The rare smoky blue dial and gold handset are superb with just the lightest trace of patina to the hands. The original Plexi is excellent and the bracelet has only a little wear in it.  Every part of this watch has been carefully examined and is undoubtedly completely original.

The movement has just been serviced and is running extremely well for a watch of its age – the mainspring is strong and the watch runs accurately for a vintage non-chronometer piece.

The Full Set comes complete with the original ‘Green Stripe’ box set, unusual for a watch of this age but undoubtedly correct as you will see from the sticker on the side.  There are also the original papers, the Rolex Oyster booklet, wallet, translation papers, and the serial numbered green seal.  What a set.
