Rolex 6509 Vintage Oyster Perpetual "Chronometer" 14kt Yellow Gold Circa 1957, Champagne Dial with a Rare Small Seconds Register at 6 o' Clock, Fluted Bezel, Rolex Calibre 1120 with 27 jewels, Gold Riveted Oyster Bracelet with Fold-Over Deployant Clasp and Engraved "66" End Pieces, 24.5mm, Extremely Rare

When it comes to gold Rolex watches, it doesn't get much better than the Rolex Oyster Perpetual 6509. Valuable Rolex gold adorns the Oyster case, rivet Oyster bracelet, and Fliplock clasp. Highly valuable, the ladies' 6509 is an excellent investment opportunity for introductory and experienced collectors alike. Features include a subtle 24.5mm Oyster case, fluted bezel, and three-link rivet Oyster bracelet. A matching gold dial adorned with yellow gold accents creates a bold statement piece for business attire and formal wear.

In 1931, Rolex introduced its patented innovation of the first self-winding movement with a perpetual rotor. Together with the first-waterproof case, the Oyster, this is an iconic model for Rolex. The Reference 6509 presented today dates back to 1957 and features a yellow gold case and bracelet and a golden dial.

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual may get overlooked by flashier models like the Daytona, or glitzy models like the Day-Date, but the Oyster Perpetual is the heart of the Rolex brand. One of the company's earliest creations, the Oyster Perpetual brings together two incredibly important technologies and laid the groundwork for all of the historic and modern Rolex watches we’ve come to know and love over the years.

The history of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual starts years before the watch itself would come into existence. In 1926, Rolex released its famous 'Oyster' case, the first case in the world that was both water and dust proof. Then less than a decade later in 1931, Rolex released its first automatic self-winding 'Perpetual' movement. Combining these two key inventions, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual would go on to serve as the foundation for nearly every Rolex watch that has followed, and it has remained in constant production for more than three-quarters of a century.
