The Watch

As Rolex prices continue to Soar, the Datejust, the Submariner, the Sea-Dweller, the GMT-Master, the Daytona, and even the Explorer these days are way beyond the average Joe with a dream of sporting a Rolex. Luckily the answer lies in the Reference 6426.
.
The Rolex Oyster Precision 6426 is a quiet time only classic, an unsung hero, and an affordable entry point into what often seems like the most exclusive club in watchmaking. 
.
The Oyster Case is sized 34.5mm diameter, these 34.5mm cases were long considered to be less desirable than larger models from the company, but over the past few years, this has changed quite drastically. As size preferences have skewed slightly smaller, appreciation of these 34.5mm Oysters has risen thanks to an extremely comfortable on-the-wrist feel.

 This guy comes on the Original 7205 Rivet Bracelet with 60 end links and has a clasp date of '66.
