1963 Rolex Oyster Precision (Ref. 6424) "36mm Case"
We at Craft+Tailored love the anomalies within vintage Rolex, whether it be an odd dial variant, a rare bracelet, or a reference with unique case details, the “Crown” always finds new ways to keep us interested. The ref. 6424 is certainly one of these anomalies, the manual wind Oyster Precision boasts an oversized 36mm case that features long, broad lugs, but the oddest characteristic of this case is the absence of lug holes, a detail most commonly seen in Rolex precious metal watches. The ref. 6424 is not only unique but it is impressively handsome and very versatile, making for a perfect everyday watch.

The impressive no-lug-holes case is believed to remain unpolished, featuring strong factory finishing and angles throughout the broad symmetrical lugs. The smooth stainless steel bezel is unpolished as well and features light signs of use. The watch comes supplied on a 2pc handmade leather strap.
The silver sunburst dial is in gorgeous condition and features a charming warm patina with minimal signs of age. The original lume plots have aged to a creamy yellow patina and remain in exceptional condition, remaining full and round without degradation when inspected under U.V. light. The original alpha hands match the dial perfectly and exhibit no degradation under U.V. light inspection.
