Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date ref. #1500 Item #2692 SOLD
Here we have a very sharp vintage stainless steel Rolex Oyster Date, ref. 1500 C-1970. The original finish smoke gray dial is in wonderful condition. It's accented with applied, faceted pale silver bar markers and matching stainless steel hands - all original and in very good shape. The solid stainless steel case has a smooth, high polish finish with a grained finish on the tops of the lugs. It's in wonderful condition for any previously owned watch, let alone one that's 48 years old. The watch features a stainless steel smooth bezel and a stainless steel Rolex crown - both original and in excellent shape.
The 1570 Chronometer grade movement features 26 jewels, auto winding and non-quickset date at 3:00. It has been fully serviced including all new gaskets, a new crystal, new casetube and a new mainspring. The case has been lightly refinished to match the watch's original appearance. A full (correct) service like this is a $700 value in our shop. We paired the watch with a high quality handmade crocodile strap in a rich charcoal gray that looks great against the smoke gray dial.
This watch comes ready to go as your new favorite daily wear or to add to your collection!
