Why We Love it

Here at analog/shift, we have a passion for timepieces with tradition, style and value. When these elements combine, an icon is formed, and it is hard to get more iconic than the brand with the big crown - Rolex.

When you think of Rolex, your first thoughts may be to their unforgettable GMT Master with its two-tone "Pepsi" bezel, the aviator's timepiece designed with Pan-Am pilots and transatlantic jet flights in mind. Or it might go to the form-follows-function Explorer I, the watch designed for mountaineers and tested under the most extreme conditions on earth. But it probably goes to the Submariner, the legendary diver by which all others are measured.

There's no denying that a Rolex Submariner is one of the most iconic watches of the last 60 years, but the same can easily be said about its diminutive siblings in the Oyster series. Designed for everyday wear, these timepieces were made as high grade affordable gentleman's watches in an era when owning a Swiss watch from any brand - never mind a Rolex - was a privilege far fewer could attain than today.

With perfect portions, a robust manually winding movement and timeless styling, the Oyster may simply be the most versatile and wearable watches ever designed. This particular model, an Oyster Precision Reference 6424, dates from approximately 1958 and features a classic 35mm steel Oyster case, stunning gloss black dial and a smooth steel bezel.  Replete with terrific original hands and "coffin" shaped hour hands, this piece simply oozes vintage charm.

Unlike other models in the Oyster line, the Reference 6424 features 20mm lugs, giving them the added perk of more strapping options.  Whether paired up with a suede, full-grain leather, nylon, or period metal bracelet, this is one vintage Rolex that will certainly catch the eye of true vintage enthusiasts, particularly in a room full of sports watches!
