The original gilt dial is in overall good condition, there is some patina however on the left side (between 7 and 9). The original hands are also in good condition. Case is sharp, unpolished to my eyes.  The movement is working great without any flaws. The original bracelet, with 57 endlinks, is in good condition (will fit smaller wrists) -it is a later replacement but period correct.



Rolex needs no introduction. This reference 6426 is the perfect entry-level watch for any starting collector (or advanced looking for some rarity). What makes this watch special is the dial and hands configuration. It is usually rare to see a black gilt dial with alpha hands, so this is your chance to get one!
