Rolex produced the mid-size Oyster Perpetual 6551 from approx. 1960 to the mid-1980s. As a mid-size reference, it offers a slightly larger presence on the wrist measuring 31mm in diameter. The ref. 6551 that is presented here today is a striking yellow gold variation that displays the time on a silver dial topped with older-style index hour markers and hands in yellow gold. The luminous material above each hour marker and inside the plots on the hands has aged to an attractive patina. The case is worn on a complimentary leather strap bracelet for a style that is ready to wear, and that also maintains an attractive entry-level price.
