Reference 6611 must be considered one of the rarest Day-Date models ever produced. The present example is a 6611B and is especially desirable because of its conditions and the caliber 1055B. The present watch was manufactured in the early years of the introduction of the Day-Date, specifically in 1958 and its yellow-gold case is still fresh as it was in that period thanks to the carefulness of the last owner. The tonneau case with screw back and reeded bezel also has a precious yellow-gold bracelet with a fine texture. The silver dial is mint with applied gold numerals without luminous dots at the hour markers like many other variations of the Rolex Day-Date such as the leaf hands with black enamel used in their centers while the calendar is in Italian. In addition, the present lot is sold with the original box and bulletin.
