1965 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 charming and oversized 36mm case features non-drilled lugs and retains thick, symmetrical lugs that exhibit minimal evidence of previous polishing and gentle signs of use. The smooth stainless steel bezel show minor wear and is in excellent condition overall. The case back displays some light tool wear. The watch comes supplied on a 2pc handmade leather strap.


The original silver sunburst dial expands the wrist presence of the watch further and remains in well-preserved vintage condition, with some gentle elements of age present but no notable damage. The tritium lume plots have mostly aged with a dark patina with subtle degradation present when inspected under UV light. The original tritium aplha-style hands feature a soft grey color that coordinates with the dial nicely and show no degradation under UV light inspection.


None. The watch was recently serviced and is keeping time perfectly, backed by a 1-year warranty on accurate timekeeping.
