Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date

Rolex Oyster Perpetual

Ref. 1501

At the turn of the 1950s and 1960s, Rolex consolidated itself as a leading brand worldwide, but above all it was recognized as a Status-symbol and production began to become important, thanks to an international commercial network.

In these times, an innovation appears regarding the dials: the "soleil" fund. This particular silvering reflected light in such a way as to create an unmistakable sparkle.

This rare pink gold specimen of the ref. 1501 from 1962 is a perfect witness, despite being a Date, it has an important presence on the wrist. Indexes and hands stand out on the polished base, and the smooth bezel illuminates everything creating a fantastic contrast.

The general condition is excellent and the bracelet retains its extensibility.

What makes this unique object particularly desirable, apart from the excellent general conditions and its original extendable bracelet, are the accompanying documents. Warranty, letters, Chronometry Bulletin. We are rarely lucky enough to find a watch in this state and with such comprehensive documentation.
