1962 Rolex Oysterdate Vintage Mens Midsize Unisex 30mm Ref. 6466 Watch - Stainless Steel


Item No. 8726

Today's offering proudly showcases this impressive Certified Pre-Owned midsize Rolex Oysterdate Precision in gorgeous restored condition - on the wrist it presents virtually like a new Rolex. Our photos couldn't do justice!

One of the desirable vintage Rolex watches right now is the Oysterdate Precision due to the fact that its understated and 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. Produced from the early 1950's into the 1980's, it was a strong commercial success for Rolex, winning a large following.

It measures 30mm in diameter. As a midsize watch it suits a man looking for a smaller vintage watch or a woman looking for more of a modern size watch.

Powering the watch is its original Rolex Caliber 1215 handwound movement with date and early shock resistance.

It has all of its original Rolex parts and has just finished a true expertly done restoration. It presents in gorgeous condition - on the wrist it presents like new. Our photos couldn't do it justice.

Its case presents as mint. Its Rolex dial has been meticulously restored - its printing could pass as Rolex factory done to the naked eye.

As part of the restoration a 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 $595 value).

We have timed it on a machine that spins the watch in all directions simulating it being worn on the wrist, and it is keeping time essentially on par with a brand new Rolex.

For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new calfskin leather strap and aftermarket Rolex style buckle making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.

We offer shipping the next business day to over 100 countries. In addition, we offer a 30 day no hassle money back guarantee if you don't absolutely love it so there's no risk to you!
