Essay

The Rolex reference 6593 derives its name from the French term "bombé," signifying rounded or convex features, initially used to describe the pronounced lugs of the watch. Over time, this term underwent an Americanization, resulting in the nickname "Bombay" for the lugs. Finding such watches, particularly in excellent condition, is a rare occurrence. This specific 14k yellow-gold model showcases a fluted bezel and arrowhead indexes, contributing to its unique and coveted design.
