Rolex Bubbleback is one of the most versatile models ever produced by the brand: among the most sought-after variants of the legendary “bubble back” series, this very nice hooded lugs reference 6087, furthermore, stands out by its attractive combination of a stainless steel and pink-gold case. The three-body steel case is solid and presents a smooth, concave gold bezel, screw down back and crown and gold cachet lugs. The black gilt dial has Arabic and baton numerals so called from the collector “California” dial, outer minute track, with a charming patina but in real nice conditions. The caliber that powers this watch is the 9 3/4“’ nickel-finished lever movement.
