The classic manual Oyster with a date;

The Oysterdate Precision reference 6694 began in the early 1960s and ran on with great success until it was finally discontinued at the end of the 1980s, earning it the distinction of being Rolex’s last manual-wind watch. 

This reference 6694 has a beautiful black dial with gold text and gold-coloured applied hour markers. The case is in excellent condition with good thick lugs. The polished bezel is in great condition too. The bracelet is a fold-link Oyster reference 78350 that has ref 557 end-links and a clasp stamped ‘H’. The reference 6694 houses a manual wind movement that has been fully checked and regulated by our watchmaker.
