Why We Love it

We probably sounds like a broken record already, but an Oysterdate is a hell of a watch! Oyster case, chronometer certified movement, steel rivet bracelet- this is Rolex doing what they do best.

The Oysterdate is available in a plethora of color combinations, but this one is about as classic as it gets. Featuring a bright silver dial and hands, it’s on the sportier side for an Oysterdate, and feels very contemporary, in a good way! The automatic chronometer movement is a Rolex workhorse classic, and out of all the watches and all the different movements that pass through our shop, Rolexes have proved to us that they deserve their sterling reputation.

The all silver and steel Oysterdate is one of the most sought-after combinations, and examples in this condition are drying up on the market. This is one beautiful Rolex, and you just can’t beat the value proposition of an Oysterdate.


What looks like a Datejust, works like a Datejust, and wears like a Datejust...but isn't a Datejust? Why, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date, of course. 

The Rolex Datejust is the undisputed favorite among many vintage Rolex collectors. The array of dial colors, hand variations and the option of a white gold or stainless steel bezel make the Datejust an incredibly versatile timepiece that could satisfy just about any collector or enthusiast.

But sometimes you want something just a little different, something that will stand out and something that will prove that you have style that demands moving out of the box. 

Produced from 1963 to 1980, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Reference 1501 is a close horological cousin to the Datejust. Featuring the same iconic Oyster Case design, three-hand plus date functionality, and build quality you'd expect to come out of Rolex, the only major noteworthy difference between the two models is approximately 2 measly millimeters. Yep, you heard it - the Oyster Date is just a smidge smaller than its Datejust siblings, and has the same great looks.

Oyster Dates, also known as Oyster Perpetual Dates later on in their production life, came in a wide variety of hand, dial and bezel permutations over the years, everything from black dials with stick hands in yellow gold cases, to silver dials with Alpha hands in steel cases.

When it comes to Oyster Dates, there’s something for everything, and the value can’t be beat!
