Awesome 1969 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date with fantastic slate grey dial with white print and rare white stripe markers in a classic model 1500 case with smooth bezel on a beautiful riveted original bracelet. This classy vintage Rolex looks sharp on the wrist yet has that unmistakable vintage feel and can be worn in any environment or outfit. I just love the look of that old style riveted bracelet with the lightly faded, almost ghostly look of the original factory printed dial. Freshly serviced this watch is keeping excellent time and testing waterproof, ready to wear without hesitation!
