Original Men’s Rolex Oyster Perpetual Turn-O-Graph N°7206 Rivet Link Automatic Sweep Centre Seconds Red Depth Rating Stainless Steel Watch ref. 6202, made in 1953. The watch is in a fully working order and is in good vintage condition.



In 1953 Rolex launched the turn-o-graph. The Turn-O-Graph was the first series-produced by Rolex to feature a rotating bezel. It was intended as a more affordable chronograph wristwatch, the chronograph being the revolving bezel: by setting the zero mark at the minute hand’s position, one can subsequently read the elapsed minutes on the bezel. This was a very simple and ingenious solution, but competition from the Submariner and the advent of the GMT in 1954 – both models presenting a similar revolving bezel which could be used in the same way – decreed the quick demise of the turn-o-graph which, with a lifespan of about three year from 53 to 56, is among the shortest-lived product lines in the history of the company, and thus one of the scarcest and most collectible.



At the heart of this watch is a legendary automatic high grade movement on 2 jewels.



In fact, even though reference 6202 was in production for a short time, there are a number of different dial designs available. The present one, featuring the red depth rating at "6" o’ clock is indisputably among the rarest. Furthermore, this watch features a completely original black matte dial signed "Rolex", "Oyster Perpetual", "50m=165ft" , "Turn-O-Graph", "Swiss". A beautiful luminous hour indexes, with luminous hours, minutes, and a central second hands.



A beautiful revolved bidirectional bezel monted on the 36mm (1,41 inch) stainless steel case, excluding the crown and 44mm (1,73 inch) from lug to lug is in good vintage condition, with surface scratches that are to be expected on any watch of this age. The case as well presents interesting details, such as the perfectly preserved Brevet designation engraved between the lugs, and the matching brevet crown with the cross. The number 18 stamped under the lug and then again inside the back stems from a difficult import procedure into the United States which occurred for a short time around that period. In order to facilitate importation, this number was at the time engraved on the inside and outside of the watch, and it indicates the case maker for the piece, in this case Genex, Rolex case maker of choice at the time. Finally, a very faint digit “1” can be noticed just before the case number. It is supposed this detail, found on other cases from this period, is the result of a manufacturing mishap.



The winding winding crown is completely original and correctly signed with the famous “Rolex” logo together with Brevet designation with the cross.



Original Rolex glass



The watch is presented on original Rolex "Oyster" riveted link bracelet ref. 7206 (end link N°58) around 19.5 cm (7,71 inch) including the watch case, with folding clasp signed "Rolex" with "Rolex" logo.



The riveted links are considerably slimmer but also much more fragile than the modern solid links.Nothing is left to chance, and for that reason each generation of Oyster bracelet came with a specific reference number, often found on the final link of the bracelet, indicating not only the generation that it belongs to but also the size of the end links that it takes.

    Dear Kwok Fai.

    This is Rolex 1601, this model doesn't have a Quickset function, this function appeared in watches with a five-unit reference number beginning from the model Rolex 16000.

    For such watches we recommend to buy a box for automatic winding of watches. If you don’t wear a watch, then you should put it into a box and after it you don't have to set the date no longer.

    Best regards, SwissOnly.
