The Rolex Oyster Date Reference 6694: Quintessential Vintage Appeal
This 6694 encapsulates everything that makes vintage Rolex watches so covetable. With its durable Oyster case, reliable movement, and rare grey sunburst dial, this Ref. 6694 delivers timeless Rolex luxury at a relatively affordable price point.

The Oyster Date Line - Date Functionality Meets Oyster Protection
The Reference 6694 debuted during an iconic era for Rolex. Having already revolutionized waterproofness in the 1920's with the Oyster case, Rolex would go onto launch the Oysterdate in the 1950s.

The 6694, would come later in the early 1960s and became a cornerstone of the Oysterdate family. It remained in production for nearly three decades, solidifying its position as a reliable and timeless classic. Unlike its flashier counterparts, the 6694 embraced a more understated approach, becoming known as the "workhorse Rolex" for its dependable function and enduring design. Even after its discontinuation in the late 1980s, the 6694 continues to be a sought-after piece by collectors.

A Rare Gray Sunburst Dial
Unlike the more common silver or black dials found on most references, this particular 6694 features an stunning rare grey sunburst dial. The brushed metallic finish radiates outward, capturing light elegantly from all angles.

Timeless Function-First Design
Applied indices and minimalist hands promote legibility while the smooth bezel and slim lugs create an understated, versatile style. The watch embodies the Oysterdate's function-first approach - durable enough for daily wear yet refined for special occasions.

The Calibre 1225 Movement - A Workhorse Movement
The manual wind Calibre 1225 movement powers the 6694 with 18 jewels and a 44-hour power reserve. Like all Rolex calibers, the 1225 underwent intense in-house testing to guarantee precision and reliability.

Add a Rare Vintage Rolex to Your Collection
With its remarkable grey dial, durable and reliable construction matched by ageless styling, this Ref. 6694 offers a distinctive addition to any collection.
