This 6494 is amazing. First, let me stress the tremendous value that 34mm vintage Rolex's represent. Running on a reliable cal.1210 movement. A fraction of the price of a Datejust, this packs enormous punch. This example, completely serviced with the black gilt dial and golden hands, red/black date window and has amazing detail that is basically unrivaled by modern watches (no matter how hard they try.) In different ways, It's just as beautiful today as it was fresh from the factory.
