Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date Just

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date Just "Ovettone"

Ref. 5030

In this reference 5030 we see the shapes become more compact, the technology more precise ... with the DateJust begins the era of "Certified Chronometers" that will characterize the brand for the years to come.

For some purists, this, together with its twin 5031, are the only DateJust that can truly be considered “Ovettone” (big Bubbleback). This nickname, coned like many others by Italian collectors in the 1980s, refers to the size significantly greater than that of the “Ovetto” (Bubbleback), but this model is the only one, which, like the Bubbleback, has a perfectly straight case between the lugs, unlike all subsequent evolutions that follow the curve of the dial.

This specimen is extraordinary from all points of view! First of all, the global state of conservation. The case is full-bodied and all the details are visible to the naked eye: back, punches, spheres and crown are consistent with the object and the era.

What takes this watch to another level are the immaculate dial absolutely relevant to the model, and the fantastic oyster bracelet specific to these unique lugs.

Overall, we are confident that we can define it as unrepeatable.
