Very few watches have had as massive of an impact as the Rolex Oyster Perpetual has. In 1931 Rolex released their first Oyster Perpetual model, a groundbreaking moment for their brand as it signified the first time they incorporated an automatic movement in their watches. This automatic movement came with added thickness which would be the source for the OP's adored nickname 'Bubbleback' as it gave the watch a bulbous shape. The release of this model in particular the Rolex 6084 model was produced in 1951. 

What to love about this watch: This Rolex 6084 comes with an unforgettably beautiful dial. 71 years of existence has given the dial a patina that all vintage watch collectors dream of, an aged ivory color that makes the gold markers and hands pop-out even in the most colorful of environments. This Rolex was no office-worker, before Rolex became synonymous with luxury and the finer things in life, they were a work man's watch, one that could be relied on no matter the job or situation that it's wearer was placed in, as such this watch's previous rugged and adventurous life has been imprinted on it in the form of gorgeous markings on its case as well as on the caseback. 

Size: 32mm case diameter (36mm with crown), 13mm height, 19mm lug to lug width. 

Condition: This watch has received a full service by a professional watchmaker and as such has a one year warranty from the date of its purchase. The watch has a replacement after-market crown as the original crown was unable to perform its duty reliably.
