1970 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date (Ref. 1550) Gold Cap

This 1970 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date (Ref. 1550) Gold cap is eye catching. The linen dial paired with the original Rolex gold cap case is striking. Rolex starting in the 50's created a process to cap the case with gold. Unlike other watches of this era, Rolex created a process that involves paring a stainless steel case with a gold cap or sometimes known as a gold shell. This creates a more affordable way to enjoy a gold case Rolex without sacrificing quality of movement and precision that is Rolex all together. This piece paired with the brown crocodile strap that provides a classic and first class look which we absolutely admire and love!

This early "Linen" dial on the specific 1970 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date is stunning. The linen dials tend to be a favorite among collectors and the enthusiasts alike as they provide visual depth and tend to look more warm and 3 dimensional when viewed in sunlight.
