Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date Chronometer Ref. 1500 steel vintage wristwatch, dated 1964

A stainless steel automatic centre seconds wristwatch with date

This is an excellent and early example of the Rolex Ref. 1500. Dated for 1964, the watch has inwardly tapering indexes with chamfered edges and the quarter markers at 6 and 9 o’clock have multi faceted surfaces. The hands are of dauphine design rather than the straight baton design that became the standard configuration for later examples of the model. The stainless steel case retains good definition with steep chamfered bezel and typical satin finished down-turned lugs. This watch is from the family of the original owner and is sold with a green Rolex wood and leather presentation case.

As part of this watch’s service and overhaul it has been pressure tested for water resistance for depths of to 100 metres.
