Description
Ah, the beauty, simplicity and versatility of a steel Rolex Date. This model 1500 from 1961 has a seldom, if ever, seen gilt gloss black dial with early style hour markers and original hands. This watch has serial number 716XXX. Pre-one million serial number Rolexes are hard to find and collectable.

Original stainless steel case with smooth bezel is 35mm in diameter by 11.5mm thick with clean plastic crystal and original screw-down crown, which is operating perfectly.

Movement is an automatic winding Rolex Caliber and is a C.O.S.C. Certified Chronometer. In my opinion, the Rolex Calibers from this period are the best-ever mass produced automatic winding calibers. These movements will run to within a few seconds a day for decades, and if properly and periodically serviced for several generations! This particular watch's movement is very clean and running.

Bracelet is Rolex heavy link Oyster 78350 with folding clasp. Watch and bracelet are in mint+ condition.
