ROLEX 50's OYSTER ROYAL ref.6144
Introducing the Rolex Oyster Royal in the 1950s .
The "oyster case" is one of Rolex's three major inventions.
Rolex paid attention to the waterproof case of Oyster, which was developing the case, and started developing a waterproof watch in collaboration with the two companies.
By adopting a machined case, a screw-back type back cover, and a screw-in crown, he succeeded in developing the world's first waterproof watch, the Oyster.
After that, female professional swimmer Mercedes Graetze surprised the world by wearing an Oyster and swimming in the Strait of Gibraltar, and the Oyster quickly became the center of attention around the world.
The Oyster Royal gives the impression of a vintage Rolex with the atmosphere of the aged dial on the Oyster case.
The white dial still retains its original beauty even after 70 years.
The gold indexes of the flying Arabic numerals have undergone aging, and the beautiful blue of the blue steel hands on the second hand, which is a characteristic of vintage watches, is a good accent and enhances the beauty of the white dial.
It's a really simple design, but with the effect of the index placement and exquisite color scheme, you won't get tired of it.
The installed movement is a hand-wound model with 15 jewels.
Since it is a simple manual winding that does not have a date function, it is a movement with excellent maintainability and stable operation.
The condition is also good, and like the dial, it is in a condition that does not make you think that the watch is over 70 years old.
Since it is also equipped with an earthquake-resistant function, it is a movement that is easy to use on a daily basis.
The size is 38mm long, 34.6mm wide, and 11mm thick, making it easy to wear.
The uniquely shaped Oyster case is not only highly waterproof, but also fits well when worn.
There are some minor scratches on the case, but overall good condition. It will be handed over after overhaul, so you can use it without any problems.
In addition, it is also a point that a genuine leather belt and buckle are attached.
Although it has a classical design unique to the 1950s , it is also an oyster case, making it easy to use on a daily basis.
It's interesting to change the belt, and if you change it to a NATO band, it will be casual down at once, so the leather belt is perfect for formal occasions.
The NATO band can be changed in style according to the casual scene and TPO , and it is one that can be matched with various styling.
