Rolex "Oyster Perpetual Day-Date Superlative Chronometer officially certified"

, Movement No. N843156, Case No. 402962, Ref. 6611B, Cal. 1055, 36 mm, circa 1959

An early, very attractive vintage automatic wristwatch with day and date indicator in German writing

Case: 18k gold, screw back ref. 6611, reeded bezel, screwed "Twinlock" winding crown, 18k gold Rolex buckle. Dial: gilt.

This is a very rare example of reference 6611B , which was usually produced in 18K yellow gold. Only a few pieces exist that were made in red 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.
Case: very good
Dial: very good
Movm.: very good, capable of running, cleaning recommended
