Today's offering showcases this classic Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date model encased in stainless steel. Essentially a Datejust with a slightly smaller diameter (34mm instead of the Datejust's 36mm) it features clean lines and a sharp look and embodies Rolex's timeless class. With its silver dial it has a cool original monochromatic style. As precise as it is classic, the watch is powered by a mechanism 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:

* Stainless steel Oyster case crafted from a single block of stainless steel. This process originally insured that watch was impervious to water to a depth of 100m.

* Cool silver monochrome dial

* Officially certified chronometer movement

* Rolex Twinlock screw down crown

* Precision advancing "snap" date mechanism

* Acrylic crystal with 'cyclops' lens for easy reading of the date

* Later period Rolex Oyster bracelet

It has been professionally serviced and the dial has been professionally re-restored. The caliber 1570 movement looks near pristine. Overall it presents in gorgeous condition, freshly expertly polished. Our photos couldn't do it justice.
