Outstanding gold Rolex from the later 1970s! 34mm Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date model 1503 / 8 in 18ct yellow gold with classic champagne / baton dial. The condition of the case, bezel and bracelet indicate that despite its age this watch has so far been only rarely and carefully worn. It is correctly fitted with a light-weight “rivet” Oyster bracelet which is in superb condition, but this type of bracelet does not cope well if given a hard life and so we recommend that this watch be bought for DRESS wear only. Comes with vintage YOUR ROLEX OYSTER instruction booklet, modern Rolex boxes, our own warranty card and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. Please note : (1) we no longer guarantee these older models to be water-resistant (2) this 1575 calibre model correctly has no “quick-set” facility for changing the date at the end of a short month, so the wearer must turn the hands through 24 hours to advance or reverse the date and (3) while the bracelet is in exceptional condition, this “rivet” style never proved especially strong and we suggest that it is kept for dress wear only. Ask one of our Rolex-trained specialists, Phil or Paul, to discuss this watch with you.
