1952 Rolex Oyster Royal Vintage Mens Unisex Uncommon Ref. 6144 Watch - Stainless Steel


Item No. 6471H

Today's offering showcases this uncommon and original Rolex Oyster Royal model #6144 encased in stainless steel. Built only in the early 1950's, these watches are fine and desirable.

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 Cal. 710 handwound movement.

The 6084 is one of the more uncommon mid-century Oysters. Adding to the rarity of our Certified Pre-Owned one with Super Oyster crown, is its uncommon uncommon inset marker dial. Rather than being applied above the dial, its markers are inset into it, giving the appearance of almost being carved into the dial. They have a rose gold looking tone, and because they're inset they stand out and change the color tone as the watch moves and light hits it at different angles.

This special Rolex checks the boxes for really cool and uncommon features. As a 31mm mens midsize, it can be worn well by anyone with smaller wrists.

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 such beautiful original condition. The watch is fully original down to the dial, hands, and winding crown. The Rolex bracelet is period correct, and added later.

Its case is also better than near mint and shows only slight signs of being polished. Its dial is awesome - it is gorgeous and presents as mint.

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

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.
