Not an old man's watch

The Rolex Day Date 6611 is the successor of the first Day Date references 6510 and 6511 and came into play in 1957 and housing the upgraded Cal.1055 movement and was in production for  just 2 years.  The case had more rounder edges and a thicker case back like the Ovettone cases showed. The bezel was a very finely fluted, also called Millerighe type bezel. It was early stage and we believe Rolex was fine tuning the specs to launch their later references. The dials were signed 'Swiss at 6' o clock and had different style hands. Noticeable is also the slope at the edge of the dial rather than being flat. The 6611 is a rare watch and the last reference before Rolex went into long-term production references. The Day Date model is also known as the President model  but no longer refers to elder people wearing the watch. A Day Date on strap is fun and as versatile as you wish it to be. Paired with different straps it could be a daily companion.
