The reference 6029 was introduced in the early 1950’s and is also known as the "Super Oyster”. It is characterized by its large screw down case back and crown and on this reference happens to see some particular dials. The lot here offered is a gorgeous and genuine specimen realized in pink gold and still incredibly well preserved. Considering its almost 70 years of age, no major signs are present nor on the back or the rest of the three-body case but rather the proportions are definitely notable. The presence of a “tile” bracelet with rhomboidal decoration in the inner part makes this watch extremely fascinating. Further fineness is the gorgeous honeycomb dial with its light patina and aging that confer additional charm to this very appreciated variation of dial. With black printing, gold baton faceted indexes, alpha hands and outer minutes and seconds division, this watch is the truly essence of Rolex style and design, and iconic testimony of good old days.
