Rolex Oyster Perpetual "Big Bubbleback" ref. #6284 Item #2567 Price $2450
This is a RARE and very COLLECTABLE C-1953 Rolex Oyster Perpetual “Big Bubbleback” (reference #6284) in very good restored condition.
The automatic winding, Chronometer grade movement is the caliber 645 with 18 jewels and signed "Chronometer” and “Timed 6 Positions". Marked “Chronometer” on the movement as well as on the oscillating weight. The screw back stainless steel Oyster case measures 34mm across at its widest point without the crown. It features its original signed Brevet Cross (+) markings between the lugs. The caseback has its original engraving “Registered Design Model Depose“. While it’s light, it’s still there and still readable.
The dial itself is original, but was refinished at some point in its life. This one was nicely done, with crisp printing and good alignment; unlike many other examples you’ll come across. The hands are all original.
The watch comes fully and correctly serviced including a new mainspring. It’s running great, keeping excellent time. Take a look at the pictures of the movement with and without the automatic installed. Easy to see this one was well maintained!
We paired the watch with a genuine leather strap with contrast stitching. Ready to wear and enjoy for years to come!
