Why We Love it

It's good to be the king.

When wading through the sea of vintage Rolex, it can be difficult to know in which direction one should travel.  At times, the divide between the tool watch models - the Submariners and Explorers - and the dressier gentlemen's pieces - Presidents, Datejusts and the like - seems incomprehensibly enormous, and it can be hard to know just what each model and execution would be suit you best. 

But wrapped around each iconic Rolex is the understated benchmark of the brand's success.  The Rolex's Oyster Case is probably one of the most ubiquitous designs in the modern era, and can be found in the simplest Oyster Perpetuals to the most sought after Explorers and Submariners.  It is the silent canvas upon which every one of the brand's executions has been painted, and regardless of the movement that fills it, or the dials that adorn it, this simple and elegant case is a huge part of the brand's global success. 

Built upon the sturdy foundation of a 34mm Oyster Case, the original Oyster Perpetual is one of the cleanest Rolex designs. And while recent trends have deemed these 34mm watches a bit on the small side, modern manufactures are beginning to re-focus on slimmer, simpler cases, making this svelte, classy design totally en vogue.  

This particular piece is especially intriguing because it has a gorgeous gloss black dial, complete with steel dart markers.  Perfect gloss dials are highly prized among collectors, and often command huge premiums, making this execution an incredible value proposition as well as downright beautiful.

Complete with box and original Guarantee papers from 1960, this piece is ready for any fan of the brand with the big crown.
