Here is a watch (once more!) I vowed not to sell in fear of not finding another in such original and superlative condition. The predecessor to the much loved Reference 1016, the 6610 is a far rarer watch, and increasingly hard to come by, more so in the condition found on the present watch

Manufacturer - Rolex

Year - 1957

Reference - 6610

Movement - 1030 Automatic

Case Serial - 268843

Material -  Stainless Steel - 36 mm not including crown

Case, movement, and dial signed

Original radium dial with gilt lettering, reading high on the geiger counter - small repair to the 12 o'clock marker only evident under UV 

Original gilt hands with white lollipop seconds hand, original radium matching the dial 

20 mm USA Jubilee bracelet with some stretch but generally good

Original low dome crystal which displays a small amount of crazing from a raked angle, and a small pressure spot in between 1 and 2 o'clock

Service history unknown however the movement is clean and the watch is running strong
