Realized in 1957, the present Rolex 6565 is an uncommon and rare reference produced with fancy and valuable features.
In addition to the classic and iconic tonneau-shaped Oyster case in stainless steel, has been mounted the ever-charming “Thunderbird” bezel with embedding for the hours. But, at the cost of becoming banal, it is still the quadrant that makes the big voice and takes the stage. The baton indexes open in a radial pattern enclosed within a track created for the particular structure of the quadrant called “step dial” further divided into 4 sectors by perpendicular drawn lines. Moreover, the beginning bright black color has slowly become brighter, reaching a fascinating shade of gunmetal gray adorned with an unusual patina due to the age that recalls a star sky.
