Rolex Oysterdate Precision 'Honeycomb' Ref. 6494 Year 1956 (with Box)
We often come across watches in the collectible range which are rare and important and most of these are usually the known popular and strong references, mostly Rolex Sports models, Day Dates or Datejusts. The Precisions usually don't enjoy that much attention but this little gem, the took our breath away when we saw it. We got more excited than when buying a Daytona or Submariner. The present Rolex Oysterdate reference 6494 has lots of charm in the original Honeycomb which is in a beautiful condition. The red depth rating in combination with the Roulette date add a lot to the beauty of this watch. The radium is original and honest and reflects the best of the 1950's. An extremely interesting watch you hardly find on the market in this condition.
