Rolex 18K PG Oyster Perpetual Midsize ref 6549 circa 1956


Rolex 18K PG Oyster Perpetual midsize ref 6549 serial # 147,xxx circa 1956. Featuring a 31mm diameter case with smooth bezel and acrylic crystal. Very pleasing original silver satin linen texture dial with yellow gold applied indexes and yellow gold baton hands. Powered by self winding caliber 1130 movement with sweep seconds. Offered on your choice of sport or exotic skin strap. Great looking midsize man’s model ideal for a lady.

Recently fully serviced and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation. Also accompanying your purchase is one of our beautiful handmade Italian leather watch travel pouches, a $55 value!

NOTE: We typically prefer pink gold models that have pink gold markers and hands. We often see examples such as the present where the markers and hands are yellow, while the case and winding/setting crown are rose gold. We can’t say whether Rolex produced watches like this, or if the dial and or hands were changed over the lifetime of the watch. In any event, the current dial is an original period dial in beautiful condition with proper period triangular indexes and the watch shows well. Just our little footnote to you.
