Another great classic from Rolex in this week's drop!The Rolex Date 1500 still has the plexi crystal and, in this case, a white dial that is signed 'Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified'. The watch has a stainless steel Oyster case and comes on a leather strap. This beauty from 1970 is powered by a calibre 1570 just like the Datejust 16XX-series. What we like about the Date is the sizing, which is slightly smaller than a Datejust measuring 34 mm in diameter. Because of that this watch, with the date and cyclops displayed at the 3-hour position, is the perfect watch for any occasion!
Rolex DateAs many of you would probably know, Rolex was the first watchmaker who created a full water- and dustproof case in the year 1926, twenty-one years after de foundation of the company. The innovation that actually led to the creation of this case was Rolex’s patented “Screw down crown” in combination with its two-piece screw-down case. This was the start of the Oyster series. It certainly lives up to its name because the watch is waterproof like an actual oyster that protects its pearl from seawater. This attribute protects the movement of the wristwatch. Later, the Date function on the dial was added, which was the birth of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date.
