1958 Rolex Milgauss Tropical Honeycomb Dial 6541

Published By

Like a TV show gaining popularity via rerun streaming post-cancellation, the Rolex Milgauss reference 6541 wasn’t initially popular. Today, it can’t pass an auction block without fetching six digits. This 1958 model is as rare as it is distinct, with features so tropical, they almost look burnt. 

A coveted aesthetic to discerning collectors, the honeycomb dial is composed of two cross layers, and was originally set there to up the already impressive electromagnetic resistance. Between that and the arrowhead cardinals, there’s a lot of dynamic dimension on this dial. Even more, the 6541 introduced the now iconic lightning second hand—a checkmate of a feature when it comes to Milgauss collectibility.
