In any case, Rolex watches with moon phase display are special. Throughout history, Rolex has not produced many timepieces with such complex functions. Among them, Ref. 6062 is definitely a more special one, because Rolex integrated a variety of functions that were not common at the time in this watch.
The watch shown above is produced in 1953. It is equipped with an automatic movement, complete calendar functions and a waterproof oyster case. In the 1950s, even luxury timepieces were not common with waterproof cases. From this point of view, Rolex is ahead of its time and is leading for decades. It can be said that Rolex created the earliest high-end, sports and complication watches in a way that is particularly popular today. The watch’s case is made of steel, which is also very rare, because most Ref.6062 is made of gold, which better meets the appearance standards of luxury timepieces of the time.
With a diameter of 36 mm, this watch is still very suitable for wearing today. The screw-down crown and stainless steel Jubilee bracelet further enhance its appeal. The dial gives it a retro charm, not only because of rare complications (for Rolex), but also in design and decoration. The gold leaf-shaped hands and hour markers contrast with the stainless steel case and bracelet, exuding a vintage feel. In addition, the ‘human face’ moon phase is also a long tradition dating back to the early days of watchmaking, further highlighting the unique personality of this Rolex watch.
