This is a rare example of an early model Rolex Oyster Perpetual wristwatch. Its feature set exudes the aesthetic of 50's-era timepieces in the form of an older-style Oyster case and a three-link rivet Oyster bracelet. Slim index hour markers and dauphine hands top the dial and are accompanied by lume that has developed a warm patina. As with many vintage Rolex watches, the case is fitted with a nicely rounded acrylic crystal that sits slightly higher than the sapphire variation found on modern timepieces. The modest size of the case wears nicely on smaller or average-sized wrists and fits comfortably under the cuff of a tight formal sleeve. With classic Rolex styling and a few vintage 1950s design features, this Oyster Perpetual 6580 is a timeless classic that will look great on any wrist!
