Just added another silver dial 6694 in my 34mm watch collection. I know the 34mm is not for everyone but I love them.

The newly added 6694 comes with original sales invoice from AD, warranty paper, inner and outer box. I'm happy to be able to own it.

I love the 34mm size. Such a comfortable switch from heavy modern watches. Very comfortable, understated look.

Thanks all for sharing!! They are fantastic. I have recently been looking for something from 1962. Keep me in mind if you stumble upon something during your "travels"

If your wrist can take the 34mm size. They are such a pleasure to wear. I find I prefer the smaller size nowadays.

In the early 1950ís, before there was a Rolex Explorer, the Oyster Perpetual Chronometer (semi-bubble back) was the tool watch of choice.
My own OP Date (1500) had just been stolen in Taipei 30 years ago, when I spotted this 6106 in a back alley off Linsen North Road selling for US$200. Belatedly I discovered it was in non-working condition (the self-winding mechanism was absent and glue had been substituted for several missing screws). But I fell in love with its face.

The Chinese representatives in Rolex Taipei and Rolex Hong Kong refused to touch it. But as I was walking out the door of their office in the Swire Building in Hong Kong, a Swiss expatriate kindly suggested it be sent back to Geneva, where Rolex Geneva then did an overhaul. Later a helpful Australian client and Rolex collector took it to his watch-maker in Sydney for a touch-up.

After several decades it is still my daily watch. However with the amount of money spent on this OP, (servicing, replacing the crown and crown tube, new crystal), I could easily have bought a shiny new Oyster Perpetual. - But then again, who ever said love makes one behave rationally.

34mm vintage Rolex

1959 Big Rose Tudor 7966 on a buttery soft Italian leather strap. I love the patina on this dial.
