About This Watch

Vintage. No box or papers.

A very attractive vintage Rolex OysterDate Precision dating to the year 1953.

This Ref.6066 is the first production Rolex medium sized manual winding model with a date and this particular example is very desirable with it's original dial and all-red digits for the date disc. These early post-war Oyster had two-piece cases which was replaced by 6266 and a final 6466 (3 pc case) before phasing out altogether in the late 1970s.

A simple Rolex that'll last a lifetime with proper care and it uses the 10½ boy size Calibre 740 movement with 17 jewels and adjusted to 2 positions.

Case has been polished to factory specs and presents very well with an excellent back cover that retains the sharp jagged teeth edge as most are very worn out by now. The movement is in excellent condition, winds well and date jumps but no quick-set. The original dial has aged beautifully with a charming patina and stamped white gold plated small corona with dagger hour indexes filled with radium plus matching dauphine hands and a blued steel sweep centre seconds sweeps across the dial. The watch has a new after-market strap with 17mm lug size.

The inner back cover is stamped "2 53" which means that the assembly time was the 2nd quarter of 1953.
