Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date Ref.1503 Men's Gold Vintage Watch
This Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date reference 1503 can trace its history back to Rolex’s original Oyster model invented in 1926. The Oyster Perpetual Date was launched in the late 1950’s and was one of the first watches to display the date in a window at 3 o’clock.
Housed in a 34mm Oyster case and originally waterproof to 100m, early examples of the Oyster Perpetual Date didn’t have a quick set date function meaning you have to wind the hands through 24 hours to change the date. It wasn’t until the reference 3035 launched in 1983 that the quick set date was added. This reference also housed the upgraded cal. 3035 with its jewel count upped from 26 to 27.
This particular piece, a reference 1503 in 18k yellow gold is the quintessential gold watch. It manages to ooze luxury without being over-the-top, its gold case perfectly balanced by its silver colour dial, gold fluted bezel and elegant gold bracelet.
With its understated, classic design and robust reliability there's no reason this Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date ref.1503 has to be reserved only for special occasions!
