The Rolex Turn-O-Graph debuted in 1953 with the reference 6202: the present lot is an example of the following reference, 6609, introduced in 1954 and in production until 1960 within the Datejust family. This new reference included many design changes from the original model including a cyclops date window at 3 o’clock, and a fine engine-turned bezel with compressed markers every five minutes instead of every minute. This lot is really gorgeous with its three-body solid case all manufactured in steel with screwed down back and crown, bidirectional revolving reeded and graduated bezel. The watch is even more fascinating since it is equipped with a steel jubilee bracelet and the dial as well has a rare feature: the black lacquered color, which enhances its beauty by standing out in contrast with the color of the case. It also presents applied faceted dart indexes and luminous dots, aperture for the date and luminous “dauphine” hands.
