1959 Rolex Oyster Precision Reference 6426 - A Timeless Classic with Rare Expanding Bracelet

Step back in time with this exquisite 1959 Rolex Oyster Precision Reference 6426. This watch is a splendid example of Rolex’s mid-century models, offering understated elegance and mechanical precision. Its attractiveness is further enhanced by its original expanding reference 6635 Oyster bracelet, making it a standout piece in any collection.

Historical Context:

Introduced in the late 1950s, the Rolex Oyster Precision 6426 is a paragon of minimalist design and technical excellence. The late '50s was an era of refinement for Rolex, focusing on creating robust, precise timepieces that could withstand the rigors of daily wear while exuding an effortless style. Oyster Precisions such as this were celebrated for their no nonsense manual-wind movements, offering a more hands-on connection to the art of horology.

Features:

  • Case: The 34mm stainless steel case embodies the durable and elegant design that defines the Oyster line. Its smooth bezel and clean lines provide a timeless look that is both versatile and sophisticated.
  • Dial: The dial is a study in simplicity, featuring crisp, clean markers that ensure excellent legibility. The silver-toned dial has aged gracefully, developing a subtle patina that adds depth and character.
  • Hands: The original dauphine hands are in excellent condition, maintaining their sharpness and contributing to the watch's legible and balanced design.
  • Movement: At the heart of the Reference 6426 lies the Rolex Caliber 1210 manual-wind movement, renowned for its reliability and precision. Recently serviced, the movement is in superb working order, promising accurate timekeeping.
  • Bracelet: This watch is fitted with the rare expanding Reference 6635 Oyster bracelet, a notable feature that enhances its collectibility. The bracelet not only provides a comfortable fit but also adds a unique vintage charm with its stretch links, a design seldom seen in contemporary watches. Its also worth noting that examples of this bracelet and end links sell in excess of £500 alone!

Whether you’re drawn to its reliable construction, or its elegant simplicity, this Rolex Oyster Precision is sure to be a treasured addition to your collection.
