Some of the most memorable watch production periods in history was the 1960’s and 1970’s.
This 1969 Rolex Oyster Date is fine example for a great start for a new vintage collector.
The stunning classic white dial and the engine turned bezel is the perfect combination to fulfill your needs for a classic 1960’s watch that will not disappoint.
The 34mm case retains very thick lugs and shows light wear from use. The versatile dial, like other model’s ref 1501, features a date window at the 3 o’clock position replacing the index marker.
The dial is topped with a sapphire crystal and cyclops window above the date aperture for better clarity. Silver hour indexes, the famous “Rolex” logo at the 12 o’clock position and signed “ROLEX Oyster Perpetual Date Superlative chronometer officially certified” are apparent on the dial.
The Watch is powered by a high-grade Rolex calibre 1570 automatic, 26 jewel movement.
The watch also features straight-line lever escapement, shock absorber, monometallic balance adjusted to temperatures and five positions, self-compensating free sprung Breguet balance spring and Microstella regulating screws for precision and durability.
The watch comes with paperwork verifying the authenticity of the timepiece.
