This superb example of the timeless Rolex Oyster Precision reference 6426, circa 1973, boasts a 34mm case with a clean dial and bezel design for a simple yet elegant look.

If you're looking for a vintage Rolex that is durable, stylish and accessible, you'll be hard-pressed to find something more appropriate than this Oyster Precision.

The first Oysterdate was released in 1953, and it was powered by manually wound movements that were not COSC certified. Instead of 'Superlative Chronometer, Officially Certified,' Oysterdate watches were labelled with the word 'Precision' on their dials and sold for less than their companion pieces. Don't let that deter you though; the mechanisms that drove these timepieces are dependable and durable. Read our post here for a more in-depth look at the history of Rolex Precision watches.

Technical & Condition: 

Presented in overall excellent condition. The dial remains very clean with the lume plots having taken on a pleasing yellow tone. The case is in good shape for its age with some scratches commensurate with its age. The bracelet remains in clean order with only light stretch. The movement is clean and running well. 

  • Case size (exc. crown): 34mm
  • Case material: Stainless steel
  • Movement: Serviced Cal. 1225 movement
  • Strap/bracelet: Oyster 7835. Will fit wrists up to 16cm (we can source extra links if required).
  • Box and papers: Our own.
