About This Watch:
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Ref 6284 was introduced in the early 1950s as a time-only dress watch. Designed with Rolex’s Oyster Perpetual case, the 6484 features a self-winding movement and a highly-domed acrylic crystal, giving this classic timepiece its nostalgic aesthetic.
The History: Rolex brands need no introduction. Founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis, these visionary men set out to do what had not been successfully and reliably done before. Build a timepiece to be worn on the wrist that is both highly reliable, functional, durable, and stylish. Wilsdorf’s dream was to create a watch that could accompany its owner through all facets of life and withstand any environment. His innovative approach and high standards for quality reshaped the watch industry as a whole. It has made the Rolex name synonymous with quality, innovation, and elegance.
The Watch: The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Ref 6284 features a 34mm stainless steel case and a highly-domed acrylic crystal and a self-winding movement. The dial is white, which has developed a patina, and features a minute track at the outer edge, with applied gold arrowhead hour markers, an applied gold Rolex crown logo at the 12 o’clock position, gold sword-style hour and minute hands, and a blued seconds hand.
The Details: This Rolex 6284 is in vintage condition, with wear consistent with the age of this timepiece. The serial number dates this watch to a production period of late 1954-early 1955. The dial, hour markers, and hands have all developed patina, visible in the photographs. This timepiece comes with an after-market brown leather strap with stainless steel tang-style buckle.
