Why We Love This Watch

Through clever marketing, superior craftsmanship, and proven reliability and durability, Rolex was able to cement itself as a luxury watch while maintaining the robust quality they're initially known for. Eventually, it has become a symbol of success and is usually bought as a reminder of a great milestone in life.

Enter this unique Rolex Oysterdate Precision 6694...gold-filled! For someone accustomed to modern Rolex watches, two things stand out from this unique reference. To start, Rolex didn't opt for their usual stainless steel case for this one. Rolex experimented with gold-filled cases around these times as to offer both durability and elegance to the wearer. The other stand-out was this was a manual-wind Rolex with a screw-down crown, hence the omission of the word "perpetual" on the dial. Before this, Rolex was able to make automatic watches, so it was very surprising, albeit a welcome one, that they considered doing something different with the 6694. For the person who would like to have a relatively practical celebration of their milestone, look no further than this unusual, yet eye-catching Rolex 6694.
