With a simple and timeless design, the present vintage Rolex Oysterdate Precision Ref. 6694 features a blue California dial with an interesting background.

An interesting element of interest, the matte blue California dial is a refinished dial with a particular pattern of indexes. The half-arabic and half-roman refinished dial took name by many examples painted in California in 1980s. Since this nickname nowadays gained popularity, it’s often associated with this kind of production. Although, the California dial pattern was patented by Rolex, a pleasure to see on 1940s Rolex Bubbleback and Panerai diving watches.

Last but not least, the watch is accompanied with a Rolex presentation box.

The present watch remains in very good overall condition. The stainless steel Oyster case is preserved with minor scratches and it might have been polished. The Rolex signed crown can be easily screwed out in order to set the time. The California matte blue dial is offered in great condition, and the lume on indexes matches in tone, lighting up with good response.
