1957 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Uncommon Vintage Mens Ref. 6564 Watch with Tropical Dial - Stainless Steel


Item No. 8105SH

Today's offering showcases this uncommon and original Rolex Oyster Perpetual model #6564 encased in stainless steel. The centerpiece of the watch, its dial, has turned "tropical," transitioning from silver to a strong sepia.

Besides its tropical tone, it has a desirable "Explorer" configuration with 3, 6, 9, Arabic numerals for the primary hours.

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.

Its dial sans a date and understated case give it a really pleasing and clean classic style. It is powered by the renowned Caliber 1030 officially certified chronometer movement with "butterfly rotor."

We were fortunate to acquire it in such pleasing original condition with fully Rolex parts. The untouched tropical dial gives it a very pleasing vintage look. The case is better than near mint and presents as scratch-free.

It is fully original down to the dial, hands, and winding crown.

Our Master Watchmaker has performed any needed servicing and replaced the waterproofing gaskets. It continues to keep very accurate time.

For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new Teju lizard strap 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.
