ROLEX OYSTER DATE “ABU DHABI” REF. 6694
- Technical datas
At 19, Hans Wildorf left his hometown of Kulmbach in Bavaria for La-Chaux-de-Fonds, a metropolis of Swiss watchmaking where he is responsible for English correspondence and office work for a flourishing watch exporter.
In 1903, the cosmopolitan and enterprising Bavarian set out once again to work in London with a reputed watch importer.
But he does not keep up and founds his own firm Rolex in 1905.
As a result, it manufactures high quality watches in all fields of activity.
The proposed model is an Oyster reference date 6694, a unique model; it’s the only one in the Oyster family to be hand-wound mechanical.
It is a round case steel 34mm diameter with silver dial with the coat of arms of Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates located on an Arabian Gulf island.
Index sticks applied. Straight hands and central second hand, date by window at 3 o’clock. The movement is mechanical with manual winding. Here is a rare execution of the Rolex house. An elegant and sporty watch, the perfect equation between sobriety and Oyster technology.
A collectible watch, but also a safe and sustainable investment.
A vintage model to put in your collection of atypical watches.
