1952 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Vintage Mens Rare "Red Letter" Ref. 6084 Watch - 14K Gold


Item No. 6470H

Today's offering showcases this uncommon and original Rolex Oyster Perpetual model #6084 encased in 14K gold. Built only in the early 1950's, these watches are fine and desirable.

This particular very rare "red letter" example has the word "Officially" in its chronometer designation done in original red printing.

The 6084 was also one of the relatively few Rolex models to feature the short-lived Super Oyster crown which was produced for only 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.

Housed in one of Rolex's water-tight Oyster cases, the wristwatch originally offered its owner complete protection against water, dust, and perspiration. Inside the rugged case Rolex placed their legendary Cal. 620 so-called "Bubbleback" self-winding movement, keeping the watch powered by only movements of the wrist.

The 6084 is one of the more uncommon mid-century Oysters. Adding to the rarity of our Certified Pre-Owned one, is its uncommon Super Oyster crown.

We purchased an impressive collection of sixteen special Pateks and Rolexes including this one from a doctor who was a collector's collector - a gentleman with tremendous knowledge, discerning taste, and a disciplined eye for detail.

We were fortunate to acquire it in all-original condition. It is fully original down to the dial, hands, and Super Oyster winding crown. Its very rare red letter silver dial is excellent condition and has slightly warmed, giving it a pleasing vintage look. The luminous on the dial and hands matches perfectly.

Its case also presents beautifully - it is scratch-free and show only fairly mild signs of being polished.

One of our watchmakers has just fully disassembled the movement down to its last screw and freshly cleaned and oiled it.

For the finishing touch it has been equipped it with an expensive high quality leather strap and gold plated vintage Rolex 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 attesting to its performance.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual:
In constitution similar to a Datejust model except without the date display and with a slightly smaller diameter - 34mm instead of 36mm - the Oyster Perpetual clearly demonstrates the qualities associated with Rolex watches: precision, reliability, durability, and class.
