Before Rolex developed the Explorer, adventurers relied on the toughness and reliability of the Oyster Perpetual. The reference 6298 that we have listed here today is a pre-Explorer model and boasts a waterproof Oyster case, a resilient stainless steel finish, and a self-winding movement. Capable of withstanding depths of up to 100 meters when this reference was new, it's no wonder that adventurers, pilots, and other outdoorsmen have chosen the Oyster Perpetual as their go-to watch. One look at this vintage men's watch reveals that it is full of character and history. The dial is beautifully aged and features dagger and Arabic hour markers, the Rolex logo at 12 o'clock, and sword hands. A rare and unique addition to any luxury watch collection.
