A Stunning example of the timeless Rolex Oyster Perpetual reference 1002.

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Reference 1002, produced between 1959 and the 1980's is an attractive fusion of elegance, robustness, and historic prestige. Among today's more in-your-face designs, the reference 1002 stands out as a testament to a more refined and understated era.

Housing the iconic automatic caliber 1560 and later 1570, the Reference 1002 guarantees exceptional timekeeping precision. Its high-beat movement ensures 28,800 beats per hour, promising not only Rolex’s signature accuracy but also a smooth sweep of the seconds hand around the dial.

A Timeless Design

It's the simplistic elegance of the Reference 1002 that truly sets it apart. The robust 34mm case together with its polished, smooth bezel perfectly frames the cream/silver sunburst dial. The dial itself showcases elegantly simple baton indices. With the date function conspicuously absent, the clean, uncluttered dial exudes a minimalist charm, telling the time in the most uncomplicated yet sophisticated manner. Finally, the watch is fitted with a classic Oyster bracelet completing the perfect fusion of elegant and robust design.

In a world where watch design often leans towards complexity and a "more-is-better" mantra, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Reference 1002 is a reminder of the timeless beauty of simplicity. It's a love letter to the past, a classic timepiece that speaks volumes about the wearer's refined taste and appreciation for traditional horology. This vintage jewel, laden with Rolex's rich heritage, is a priceless addition to any watch enthusiast's collection.
