Product Description

This early Day-Date, reference 6611B is very rare. It was usually produced in 18 K yellow gold; only a few pieces exist that were made in pink gold or platinum. Rolex officially launched the first Day-Date model reference 6511 in 1956. As is well known, it was the first water resistant watch to display the date at 3 o'clock as well as the day of the week in full at 12 o’clock. However, since this model had some technical flaws, reference 6511 was replaced by Day-Date reference 6611 after only a year.
The overall condition of the case is excellent with edges that are still crispy. Presented in an unpolished condition, the case colour is darkened by rare gold oxide and shows a beautiful warm gold tone. The gilt dial has some minor, age-appropriate patina but is in a well-preserved original condition with some small attractive sprinkles.
