There's a vintage Rolex replica watchthat's quite collectible,but whose real strength is as an evertday wear. The 6694 was created in the early 1960s towards the late eighties, a brother or sister towards the Air-King and Oyster Perpetual. The reference was outfitted using the manual wind, non-chronometer, calibre 1225. As the manual wind is a superb feature for any watch nerd, having a screw-lower crown (which all Rolex Oysters have), it's really a bit cumbersome for that casual individual to wind every day. Individuals folks might describe it as being 'charming,? using the myriad associations the term has, both good and bad. The stainless steel case spreads the calipers to 34mm (sans crown), and is topped with a Plexiglas crystal that protrudes quite a bit above the bezel. Older models that haven’t been serviced may have their crystals nearly totally rounded over. That 34mm dimension might keep a modern casual wearer away, as it’s well under the 40mm plus of a lot of current watches. However, classic good looks and rich dial colors, along with the oyster bracelet do much to mitigate that argument. Hands evolved over the years as well, starting with Rolex’s unique dauphine-sword hands, and ending with modern pointed stick hands. Early versions (from the 1960s) came equipped with riveted oyster bracelets, which were replaced in later years with the newer oysters. If the watch ever came on a jubilee bracelet, I did not find any in my searches. However, the 6694 looks great on a strap, so make note of that.
