    The Rolex 6694 is not the first model of Rolex. the first Rolex is the trench watch with porcelain dial (non oyster version). The first oyster shall be the octagonal watch. The 6694 is from the 1960s onwards.

    5513 would be a good choice. IMO

    If you like the more classic design, you can go for the 5500, or the 1601. If you want earlier Rolex you can go for Rolex Royal.

    Thats even better.
    All my old sport Rolexes have lost their lume and developed nice patina.
    A wonderful thing that new watches with luminova cannot develop

    I guess for a basic starter watch.....jus to get a feel of acrylic.....its the iconic 6694. It holds its own to any watch. Regards,P.
