The Rolex Bubbleback is so called as it was the first automatic movement put into a watch and as the movements were thicker than the manual movements therefore had a deeper case affectionately known as “Bubblebacks” and here is a very handsome and stylish vintage Rolex Bubbleback reference 6050 dating from 1948.
The look of the Rolex Bubbleback is wonderful on the wrist and this particular model has a partial hooded lug case which can be seen as the horizontal bar between the lugs giving it a nice clean straight line where the band meets the watch case.
Made for a gent at the time, it would look good on a man or a woman thanks to its universal 31mm watch case size.
Fitted with the Rolex Oyster screw down crown, the dial is completely original and not repainted and has achieved a wonderful patina that is complimented by the centre sweep second hand.
Inside is the Rolex calibre NA that has just come back from a full service and even after nearly 80 years runs beautifully, keeps perfect time and comes with our twelve month warranty.
This is very handsome and attractive vintage Rolex Bubbleback that looks and feels great on the wrist.
