34mm vintage Rolex

The 34mm may be regarded as 'small' watch in today standard. But I find myself fall in love with these 34mm beauties and they are extremely comfortable to wear. I like the thinner case and lightness of the watch and pretty sure that I will add more of these small watch in my collection in near future.

Please show off yours 'small' watch from your collection. Cheers

Haha, that's what inspired the shot! But it's actually a (matte) black dial. It's just reflecting the blue sky.

OP, is your 6694 a gloss or matte black dial ?

I agree with you, vintage 34mm Rolex are a pleasure to wear. They are not that small because they are quite tall.

Beautiful. You guys are inspiring me to start a new search! Much more attractive than the current OP's for example.

Hi, it is glossy black gilt dial. You can see the below shot. Never tired looking at the dial.

Hi Chris. The Advisor has slim case but when the alarm sounds, you could actually feel the strong vibration on your wrist. It is full set with all the accessories.
