Today's offering showcases this handsome all-original Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date model encased in 18K gold with very uncommon Rolex bracelet with links that resemble those of a President. The Date model is essentially a Datejust with a slightly smaller diameter (34mm instead of 36mm). Powered by the highly regarded Caliber 1570 movement, the mechanism that powered Datejust watches as well early Submariner, Explorer, and GMT models, this original vintage classic is worthy of a home in a fine collection or under the cuff of a deserving gentleman. Here is a little more about the watch:

* 18K gold Oyster case

* Self-winding movement, officially certified by the Swiss watch governing body

* Rolex Twinlock screw down crown for water resistance

* Acrylic crystal with magnifying 'Cyclops' window for easy reading of the date

* Beautiful original champagne dial in just short of perfect mint condition.

* Elegant fluted gold bezel

* Very uncommon and original 18K gold Rolex bracelet with links done in a Presidential style

It is fully original down to the hands and winding crown. The case is in pleasing condition. The original champagne dial is just short of perfect mint. And the chronometer movement is running very true. Our Master Watchmaker has just performed any needed servicing on the watch including installing new genuine Rolex gaskets.
