The vintage Rolex Date 1503 is a luxurious watch that is sure to catch the eye. The Oyster Perpetual with date and a four digit model reference was first released in the 1950's. The cases measure 34 mm and were made of stainless steel, white, yellow or pink gold. The use of quality and luxurious metals is not only aesthetically pleasing, but ensures that the watch will continue to hold its value over time.

The dial is crisp, legible and exudes a luxurious allure which makes this example not only a classic but a highly desirable timepiece. The size of the case also means this is ideal for either male or female with the calibre 1560 movement beating inside.
