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.
Made for less than three years, the 6022 is one of the more uncommon mid-century Oysters.
Its Oyster case is in excellent condition. Its silver dial has been professionally restored. And the movement is clean. The crown has been previously replaced - it would originally have had a Super Oyster crown - and the new crown has the same non-screwed down style as the original.
Our watchmaker has cleaned and oiled it. Its original handwound movement is running strong and true.
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.
Please note: Published examples of this model can be found in Osvaldo Patrizzi's work Rolex, Collecting Wristwatches, 2001 Edition, Vol. 2, pg. 232.
