1967 Rolex Oyster-Perpetual Date (Ref. 1500) Silver Dial

1963 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date (Ref. 1501)

The Rolex Oyster-Perpetual Date is one of the best value-per-dollar Rolex watches that exist on the market today. Priced slightly below the more predominantly known and slightly larger Rolex Datejust, the vintage OP Date is often found in great condition with unique dials that offer more presence than could be achieved by case size.

The thick and symmetrical case is in excellent overall condition with light signs of previous polishing and honest signs of use. The smooth stainless steel bezel shows light signs of use and is in great condition overall. The original Rolex 7205 Oyster rivet bracelet with 57 end pieces is dated to 1967 and retains 12 links that show very minimal stretch and will fit up to a 7 1/2-inch wrist.


The original silver sunburst dial features a beautiful vintage aesthetic, displaying tasteful yet subtle elements of age throughout with no real damage present. The tritium lume plots have developed a handsome creamy-ivory patina and show no visible degradation when inspected under U.V. light. The original tritium hands match the dial perfectly, under U.V. light inspection the hour hand features some nominal lume loss that isn't visible to the naked eye and remains stable, the minute hand exhibits no degradation. The metallic date wheel is original with "closed" 6's and 9's.


None. The watch is keeping time, backed by a 1-year warranty on accurate timekeeping.
