Oyster Date

The Oyster Date 1501 comes with an untouched blue dial and beautiful engine turned bezel. This watch was made during one of the most exciting times in watchmaking - the 60's and 70's. It is during this time that manufacturers implemented some of the most important advances in horology. The Oyster Date comes with a waterproof case (hence Oyster) and a COSC certified movement, making the watch and ideal chronometer and weekend beater. 

About the Brand

Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis founded Rolex in London in 1905. The company started as a timepiece distribution company. But it soon became a wristwatch manufacturer after Wilsdorf realized he could manufacture movements that could be worn on the wrist, something unheard of at the time. In 1910 Rolex is awarded the worlds first Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision. In 1914 it is awarded the Precision Certificate for its new movements. These awards turned Rolex into a symbol of precision and elegance. A status it maintains to this day.
