Moreover, 1951 was the 25th year since when the first Oyster case has been realized, the innovation and demonstration of cleverness which made Rolex known all over the world. And watches like this Reference 6284 perfectly captured this essence of ingenuity, and also a distinctive flair. Its simple and essential design has nothing to envy to other more “noble” models. The pink-gold case is in great storage conditions, the pure white dial as well in very elegant completed and made even more attractive thanks to the special tridimensional dagger indexes. Equipped with an automatic movement, the present watch is the perfect example of essentiality, functionality and utility, what Rolex has always represented.
