ROLEX OYSTER DATE “DUBAÏ” REF. 1500
Fine and rare stainless steel self-winding wristwatch with silver dial and date.
The Rolex Oyster Date reference 1500 is launched in 1962, it inspires elegance, simplicity and robustness.
Pure and soft lines with a strong character, an icon of the brand.
It is a case resulting from research that dates back to 1926, the date of creation of the first Oyster, worn by Mercedes Gleitze when she swam across the English Channel.
The Oyster has been manufactured for more than 80 years, thanks to its screwed crown and case back, a brilliant idea of Hans Wilsdorf for the water-resistance of watches.
The model presented here is the reference 1500 from 1978. A stainless steel round case of 34 mm diameter. Silver dial with applied stick indexes. Straight hands and central second hand. Date window at 3. Plexiglas glass with magnifying lens. Manual-winding mechanical movement. Stainless steel Oyster bracelet.
This rare model was given in endowment for the armed force soldiers of Dubaï, hence the coat of arms on the dial.

The Oyster Date is a star from Rolex with a stunning career.
A must-have with pure and elegant lines, a chic and sporty watch.
