Rolex Oysterdate Ref. 6694 “Hysteric Glamour”
This is seriously cool!
Here we have a Rolex Oysterdate with a customized ‘Hysteric Glamour’ dial. But it is customized so well, that it is quite hard to tell it was not originally done by Rolex themselves.
Hysteric Glamour is a high-end fashion house from Japan. It was founded in 1984, and has a very distinct street style of its own. Some time, probably late eighties, the label added its name to a small batch of Oysterdate Rolex watches from the early sixties. This explains why the watch is over two decades older than Hysteric Glamour itself. The printing has been performed to an extremely high standard, nearly indistinguishable from double-signed dials by Rolex themselves. Under a microscope, you can spot that a different paint was used for the ‘Hysteric Glamour’ line, as compared to the rest of the dial.
This, then, is a very cool oddity with a unique story of its own. If you are a fashion-head, this will surely push your buttons.

Rolex is the absolute king of everyday watches. If it is haute horlogerie or the pinnacle of artistry in finishing techniques you are after, look elsewhere. But for pure everyday function, ruggedness and refinement, Rolex wears the crown.
The brand was founded by Alfred Davis and Hans Wilsdorf in London in 1905. In 1908, the name “Rolex” was registered. The brand would put a host of firsts and records to its name in the decades that followed. From the first chronometer rated wristwatch in 1910 to the first wristwatch with a water resistance of 100 meters in 1953.
A range of waterproofing measures, among which a screw-down-crown, resulted in the famous Oyster case. Up to this day it is the basic platform on which the vast majority of Rolex watches is built. Model names often feature both the Oyster (water resistance) and Perpetual (self-winding movement) terminology, followed by a specific model designation such as Datejust or Submariner.
Both modern and vintage Rolex watches are highly sought-after. They are broadly appreciated for their timeless designs, functional toughness, reliability, brand recognition and value retention.
