Rolex Stainless Steel Speedking ref. #6056
Wonderful condition on this vintage C-1953 Rolex Speedking, reference #6056. The untouched stainless steel Oyster case measures 30 mm across without the crown, and 36.6mm from lug tip to lug tip. The off-white dial is a very old refinish, and one that was very nicely done! It has aged so the finish has a nice patina. It also features luminous hour and minute hands and a blued steel sweep seconds hand. The movement is a high-grade Rolex made with 17 jewels, and marked “Precision”.
The watch comes correctly serviced by us and is keeping good time. While in for service, the movement was completely disassembled, cleaned, and then lubricated during reassembly. A new mainspring was also installed. We cleaned the case only, replaced the gaskets, and installed a new crystal. No polishing or refinishing was done by us during service. The case looks great as it is. It has certainly been worn, but we think it is wonderful given its age so we left it as found.
