1957 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Vintage Mens Watch, Ref. 6564 - 14K Gold


Item No. 5646

Today's offering showcases this all original Rolex Oyster Perpetual model #6564 encased in gold in gorgeous and seldom found in this condition. It has a beautiful two-tone spun silver dial.

It's no date dial and understated case give it a really pleasing and clean classic style and its unusually well-preserved condition makes it a special piece suited for a very fine collection.

It is powered by the renowned Caliber 1030 officially certified chronometer movement with butterfly rotor.

The case back has been previously polished to lighten a personalization. The rest of the case appears to be either unpolished or to only have been polished extremely lightly, and is just short of mint. The top of the lugs have patina on them.

The silver dial is original and just short of perfect mint with luminous that has warmed to a light sepia tone.

Our 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, replacing all of the waterproofing seals with new Rolex gaskets, and extensive timing testing and regulation (a $495 value).

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.

Note: A published example of a similar watch can be found in Osvaldo Patrizzi's work Rolex, Collecting Wristwatches, 2001 Edition, Guido Mondani editor, Vol. 2, pg. 10.
