The present reference 6512 offered here is interesting due to the case that is considerably thinner than the standard Oyster case: measuring only 9 mm, it obtained the award of the thinnest Oyster case made by Rolex. It is equipped with a caliber 1000 which was made for only one year, in 1955 and makes this watch a really collectible piece for fanatics. The pink gold case is in great condition, while the silvered dial presents a nice rounded shape with sunked subsidiary seconds at 6 o’clock with applied baton numerals. There are not many of these available on the market today, so this would make an excellent addition to any collection.
