A Very Distinctive Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date, Official Rolex Model Reference 15037 in 14k gold with a stunning, brilliant blue, sunburst dial with gold dial furniture and solid gold fluted bezel - c.1983. Rolex Box Included. 

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date made its debut in the mid-1950s. For some context, Rolex released the Datejust in 1945 and it came equipped with a 36 mm case whilst the Date sported a slightly smaller 34 mm case size. Whilst Rolex produces various sizes within the Datejust collection, the brand's 34mm date-displaying watch is known simply as the Rolex Date.

At the beginning of the 1980s, Rolex launched the reference 15037, which offered much of the same overall styling as its predecessor, the ref. 1503, but with the new and improved Caliber 3035 movement. By the end of the 1980s, Rolex had updated its date-displaying movement again with the launch of the Caliber 3135, signalling an end for the reference 15037.

 What’s On Offer 

This stunning 14k gold Date is a real head turner with its brilliant blue sunburst dial with raised gold baton hour markers and date aperture at 3 o'clock. An opulent take on a classic reference from Rolex, this is the perfect mid-size (34mm) dress watch with its elegant lines, solid gold fluted bezel, and gold Rolex signed Oyster bracelet. The watch is in excellent condition with only slight signs of wear, considering its age and the fact it's a gold watch, we would expect more signs of wear on a vintage watch such as this, suggesting the watch has been well cared for! Offering a nice weight on the wrist as one would expect from a solid gold watch, the proportions wear well and the rich colour combination of the blue and gold make for a very distinctive look. This is a real gem, a timeless reference that will simply never go out of style. Snap it up!
