1954 Rolex Oyster Oversize Precision Waffle Dial (VW678)
Presented in close to mint fully overhauled condition is this extremely rare and collectable 1954 36mm oversize stainless steel vintage Rolex Oyster Precision ref: 6224. This Rolex has a very rare waffle/textured dial, these dials were only fitted to selected models and are highly sought after. Hardly any of these ref: 6224’s were originally made (possibly only in the hundreds) with very few ever coming to market, this particular example has the most desired of the various dial types produced. It is possible that this is the only example of its type available worldwide.
The genuine top quality stainless steel vintage Rolex ref: 6224 oversize Oyster case is in near mint original condition. The case measures 36mm in diameter excluding the signed screw down Rolex winding crown. The screw in case back is signed ‘MONTRES ROLEX SA GENEVA SWISS 6224 1.54’, the serial number 856xxx and case back both date this Rolex to 1954. The case has the correct finishes having highly polished sides and contrasting brushed satin lug shoulders, the silver waffle dial is framed with a highly polished smooth stainless steel bezel.
This Rolex has been fitted with a new hand made brown Hirsch strap which is from their Artisan range and is of the highest quality complementing the watch beautifully. A stainless steel Rolex buckle has been fitted to the new strap.
The original silver waffle textured dial is in mint condition and is a very rare and desired type also having the Explorer style layout. The dial has very attractive gold hour markers with Arabic numerals on the quarters making them really stand out from the dial, the gold hands and blue steel seconds sweep contrast beautifully with the silver dial. The dial is signed ‘ROLEX OYSTER PRECISION SWISS’ with the raised gold Rolex crown logo in the twelve position. This dial gleams in natural light and looks superb on the wrist.
The high grade manual wind 17 Jewel Swiss made Rolex caliber 710 Superbalance Precision movement is in superb overhauled condition and is keeping excellent time over a 36hr period, this movement has been well cared for over the years and has just benefited from a full service/overhaul. The watch winds and sets smoothly. The movement is signed ‘MONTRES ROLEX SA SEVENTEEN 17 JEWELS GENEVA SWISS ADJUSTED TO 2 TWO POSITIONS’.
