Rolex Oyster Perpetual Ref. 6105 ‘Ovettone’

A piece of history is what you see here … It concerns the Rolex Oyster Perpetual in 18K yellow gold on an also 18K yellow gold jubilee bracelet. This beautiful watch already dates from 1953… can you imagine it?… They call this watch the “Bubble Back” or the “Ovettone”. Rolex’s Bubble Back/ Ovettone watches get their nickname from their extremely rounded, protruding case-backs. Although highly interesting from a design standpoint, the Bubble Back design was actually born out of necessity as an efficient means to house Rolex’s thicker, self-winding movements. We would like to show you some nice details about this special watch. Take a look at the dial. The coloured patina that you see on the dial was created by burning in radium. This gives the ultimate vintage feeling with this watch with its beautiful “traces” from days gone by. What is also very specific are the set with arrowhead hour markers, alpha hands, and a distinct red date wheel. Beautifully aged, this handsome vintage dress reference 6105 is full of character and history.

This vintage Rolex watch is sure to become the highlight of your watch collection. We cordially invite you to convince yourself while enjoying a rich cup of coffee.
