An Elegant Rolex Oyster Perpetual with Unusual Tritium and Roman Numeral Dial in White with Applied Baton Hour Markers with the  Zephyr Style Engine Turned Bezel.

Ask anyone, anywhere, to name a luxury watch brand, and the answer will probably be “Rolex.” The main reasons for the brand’s success are its commitment to precision and relentless pursuit of innovation. In 1926, the company introduced the aptly named Oyster model. With a screw-down crown and case back, both fitted with rubber gaskets, this was one of the first waterproof watches. Five years later, Rolex upped its game with the Oyster Perpetual.

What’s On Offer 

For sale, today is a stunning Rolex Oyster Perpetual ref. 1003/1002 with a rarely seen white tritium dial. This is a really fresh-looking vintage Rolex timepiece and it's not every day you see one in this condition, especially with the bright white dial, Roman numerals, applied baton hour markers, and elegant stick hands with tritium inserts. The signature at 12 o'clock is crisp as is the chronometer certification at 6 o'clock and the crown punches out adding stature to this watches mid-size dimensions. It really is in mint condition with no blemishes to speak of and looks dandy on the wrist. Understated elegance with everyday wearability especially on the mint Oyster, Rolex 78350 bracelet. This watch will slide seamlessly from 'day in the office' to 'black tie dinner'.
