Another Rolex this week, however this time a vintage and amazingly uncommon model, the Rolex Commando ref.6429. We really didn’t catch wind of it before until our companions from published content to a blog about it in 2009. An individual watch lover and authority from Singapore reminded me about it a week ago and that he’d seen (which got pulled off rather rapidly again).
Although Christie’s – who sold a couple – claims them to be created in 1967, however Hodinkee is quite sure it was delivered in 1972 and only in 1972. The last one Christie’s sold for $25.000,- USD in December 2010 ( ). They should have without a doubt been exceptionally restricted underway, since each model we’ve experienced has close sequential numbers.
Similar to the vintage Rolex Explorer 1016, yet extraordinary in various ways. The development first of all, isn’t a self-winding type yet a hand wound type 1225 all things considered. With a size of simply 34mm it is more like an Airking or customary Oyster Perpetual in tempered steel. The dial has likenesses with the Explorer 1016 also, yet the hands are unique. In any case, it causes an Airking or Explorer from that timeframe simple to alter to an incredibly uncommon Rolex Commando. That’s without a doubt and most likely that’s what occurred at the eBay sell off, despite the fact that that’s a wild speculation. If it’s not too much trouble, consider utilizing the nonexclusive principle here: in the event that it looks unrealistic, it presumably is. Basic however very successful to keep your cash [or investment] safe.
Make sure, in the event that you need to pay special mind to an all unique and legitimate Rolex Commando, that you can depend on the seller’s experience and expertise.
In Munich, at they have one available to be purchased right now. Cost distinctly on solicitation, yet hope to pay a ton of these vintage and uncommon Rolex Commandos.
