Rolex 14K YG Bombe ref 6593 circa 1956

SOLD

Rolex Oyster Perpetual so called  “Bombe” model 14K gold ref # 6593 serial# 172,xxx circa 1956. Featuring 34 x 40mm Oyster case with prominent bowed lugs, fine fluted bezel, acrylic dome style crystal, and beautiful and richly patina’d original champagne dial with large faceted heart shaped applied indexes and gold faceted dauphine hands. Powered by Rolex calibre 1030 movement with sweep seconds. An exceptionally nice condition and distinctive original dial and matching hands. Fully serviced and detailed by our most meticulous watchmaker, and offered with a 1 year warrantee of accurate time keeping and operation, on your choice of fine leather or exotic skin strap. NOTE: The bombe style case with it’s pronounced and curved lugs is arguably the most elaborate and best looking Oyster case design from Rolex.

The current example features a very richly patina’d original dial, with a very bright and lively surface, and beautiful even toning throughout. One might draw a comparison to the rich toning of a proof condition gold coin. Perhaps not to everyone’s taste, but we think a lot of this dial and sure someone is going to feel the same way!

Brand

Vintage Rolex & Pre-Owned Rolex Watches

There is no watch brand more associated with quality, prestige, luxury, success, and social status than Rolex. Founded in the UK in 1908 and soon relocated to Switzerland, Rolex is credited with countless technical advances in time keeping accuracy, the introduction in 1928 of the water and dust resistant “Oyster” case, and in 1933, the perfection of the self winding “Perpetual” movement. With sponsorship of sporting events as wide reaching as the America’s cup, to the Daytona 500, golf and tennis tournaments, and expeditions to the far reaches of the world, Rolex has always promoted it’s brand as an icon of success, achievement, and conquest. With popular “tool” watches such as the diver’s Submariner or Seadweller, the Aviator’s dual time zone GMT, the spelunker’s 24 hour Explorer, or the auto racer’s Daytona, Rolex has created loyal followings for the sports minded man. And the dressy Datejust and Presidential models, once the CEO’s trademark timepiece, are now much sought after by both men and woman as a luxury fashion statement. Whether vintage Rolex or more contemporary, your choice of a Rolex will always be a good choice.

All of our pre-owned Vintage Rolex watches are fully restored and guaranteed genuine to give you excellent service and piece of mind.
