Notes: This striking vintage mid-size Rolex Oyster Speedking is an incredibly rare find. A piece of Rolex history, the Speedking made its first appearance in the 1940's and brought with it a classic design that is just as relevant today as it was when it first debuted. Within the 30mm Oyster case lies a white dial with an appealing a minimalistic design. The dial is set with dagger hour markers, alpha hands topped with lume, and the name "Rolex Oyster Speedking" displayed just below the Rolex Crown at the 12-hour marker. The simplicity of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual reference 6420 will win you over from the moment you put this vintage timepiece on your wrist. A comfortable Rolex leather band accompanies the case, creating a sophisticated statement piece for any outfit.

Mechanism:
This calibre dates from the mid 1950s. The calibre 1210 was one of the many derivations of the old Hunter 10½ movement, which dated back to the 1920s. The 1210 was one of the last of these manual wind movements, unlike the original 10½ movement it features shock protection on the balance & escape pivots. These movements usually feature 17 jewels, and were used in the 3038 series of 'Pre-Cellini' watches.

The 1210 is the sister to the 1215, with the primary difference being that the 1215 has a date feature where the 1210 does not.
