Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date

What looks like a Datejust, works like a Datejust, and wears like a Datejust...but isn't a Datejust? Why, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date, of course!

Featuring the same iconic Oyster Case design, three-hand timekeeping plus date functionality and build quality you'd expect to come out of Rolex, the only major noteworthy difference between the two models is approximately 2 measly millimeters. Yep, you heard it - the Reference 1500 Oyster Perpetual Date is just a smidge smaller than its Datejust siblings, and has the same great looks. In the past we have gone on and on about the absolute perfection that is the Datejust in the past, and the Oyster Perpetual Date is worthy of all the same praise. It may very well be the only watch you'd ever need.

Perfect for ladies and gents alike, this particular Oyster Perpetual Date features a stunning silver sunburst dial which has developed a gorgeous gold-toned coloration from aging.  With a smooth steel bezel, sharp lugs, and absolutely knockout alpha hands, this is a tremendous example from the early 1960s. An absolutely killer look and a great value for a unique vintage Rolex!


Stainless Steel case is approximately 34.5 mm (Excluding Crown). Rolex Reference 1500. Circa 1963.

Overall Condition: Case is in very good condition over all, showing light signs of prior polishing.  Lugs remain fat and sharp! Original silver dial is in very good condition, showing a lovely even patination with a tinge of gold coloration throughout. "Alpha" hands are in outstanding condition with a creamy patination to the luminescent elements.  Original case back and signed crown.

Includes one brown 20mm leather strap with contrast stitching.
