Rolex Oysterdate Precision 6694, 1960
Often overshadowed by its more illustrious counterparts, the Rolex Oysterdate Precision 6694 represents an intriguing chapter in Rolex's history, offering a distinct blend of simplicity and elegance.

Oysterdate Line Evolution:
The Rolex Oysterdate line, launched in the 1950s and remained part of Rolex's lineup until 1989, represents the brand's endeavor to offer high-quality, more accessible watches. Distinct from the typical Rolex fare, these models featured manually-wound movements, diverging from the brand's signature automatic 'Perpetual' mechanism. They also lacked COSC certification, bearing the 'Precision' label instead of the usual 'Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified' inscription. Smaller in size at 34mm, the Oysterdate was positioned as an entry-level option, akin in design to the iconic Datejust but distinct in its approach and affordability.

Refinement of the Reference 6694:
As the last iteration in the Oysterdate series, the ref. 6694, introduced in the late 1950s, brought notable improvements such as the Breguet overcoil hairspring and a higher-beat movement. Significantly, for the next three decades, Rolex maintained the ref. 6694, such was its recipe for success!

Design Approach:
The design of the Oysterdate Precision 6694 is straightforward, in a good way, with a focus on functionality and legibility. This 1960 example features a timeless dial layout emphasising readability and practicality over decorative elements. Whilst the majority of 6694's were offered in stainless steel, this example is one of the rarer gold cap examples offering a slightly dressier feel.

In summary, this 1960 Rolex Oysterdate Precision 6694 stands as a noteworthy option for those interested in a more understated and manually operated piece from Rolex's past. Its straightforward design and functional focus make it a great choice for collectors who appreciate a simpler, yet historically significant, timepiece.

The hands also remain in excellent condition having been previously re-lumed to a high standard with the colour matching the dial plots. For its age the case remains in good shape having been previously refurbished. The visible part of the watch in excellent condition.
