The 6694 was created from the mid 1960s to the last part of the 1980s, a kin to the Air-King and Oyster Perpetual. The reference was furnished with the manual breeze, non-chronometer, type 1225. While the manual breeze is an extraordinary component for a watch geek, with a screw-down crown (which all Rolex Oysters have), it tends to be somewhat lumbering for the easygoing wearer to twist consistently. Those people may portray it as “beguiling,” with the heap meanings the word has, both positive and negative.
The stainless steel case spreads the calipers to 34mm (sans crown), and is finished off with a Plexiglas precious stone that projects a considerable amount over the bezel. More seasoned models that haven’t been adjusted may have their gems almost completely adjusted over.

All things considered, in the event that you wouldn’t fret modding a Rollie…
Hands developed throughout the years too, beginning with Rolex’s special dauphine-sword hands, and finishing with current pointed stick hands.
Early forms (from the 1960s) came outfitted with bolted shellfish wristbands, which were supplanted in later years with the more current clams.
