Today's offering showcases this classic Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust encased in stainless steel. Featuring clean lines and a sharp look, this watch embodies Rolex's timeless class. To us, when it comes to elegance and refinement, the Rolex "pie-pan" dial models were front-runners of the period.
As precise as it is classic, the watch is powered by the 1560/1565 movement that powered many early models of the Submariner, Explorer, and GMT models. A superior mechanism, it offers a level of engineering and craftsmanship that is exceptional.
Here is a little more about it:
- Silver "pie-pan" concave dial, original and untouched in mint condition
- Smooth domed bezel
- Rolex caliber 1560/1565 automatic movement
- Period Rolex "crimped link" Oyster bracelet
- It presents in beautiful condition. The genuine and period-correct Rolex case bears a reference number for a non-date Rolex and appears to have been swapped at some point.
Our Master Watchmaker has fully serviced the watch which consists of fully disassembling the movement, carefully inspecting each part, replacing any overly worn components, reassembling and lubricating the movement, replacing all of the waterproofing seals with new Rolex gaskets, and extensive timing testing and regulation (a $495 value).
Accompanying it is is later period Rolex booklet and chronometer tag..
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to its performance.
