One of the more seldom seen classic vintage Rolex watches is the Oyster Precision as Rolex made most watches of this style with a date.
It features a much thinner profile than the Perpetual models due to its hand-wound movement, and its understated and very classic design contrast the "busier" look of some of the modern Rolex watches. It's a watch that is perfectly at home being worn everyday or only for special occasions.
The 6082 was one of the relatively few Rolex models to feature the short-lived Super Oyster crown which was produced for only approximately three years. The “Super-Oyster” winding crown was an attempt by Rolex to create a waterproof winding crown which did not need to be screwed down. While the system itself worked, in time the rubber seal perished and therefore this crown type was phased out after only a few years of production.
Most 6082's have traditional screw down crowns - 6082's with a Super Oyster crown are uncommon. The 6082 was also an early shock-resistant Rolex as noted on the dial. Further adding to its rarity are its stunning and uncommon rose gold accents, rather than steel or yellow gold. This Rolex checks a lot of boxes for cool and interesting features.
It measures 34mm in diameter, the size of a Rolex Date watch.
Powering it is its original Rolex handwound movement with early shock resistance. It classic dial has a wonderfully textured center and gilt printing.
It has fully Rolex parts and has just finished a true expertly done restoration.
Its case presents in gorgeous condition. Its Rolex dial has been meticulously restored - its printing could pass as Rolex factory done to the naked eye. Its original high-grade handwound movement is keeping very accurate time.
As part of the restoration a Master Watchmaker has fully serviced the watch which consists of fully disassembling the movement, carefully inspecting each part, replacing any overly worn components, reassembling and lubricating the movement, and extensive timing testing and regulation (a $595 value).
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new calfskin leather strap with aftermarket Rolex style buckle making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
