The Rolex Date (1503) is a classic and timeless timepiece original from the late '70s, early '80s. It's known for its elegant design and reliable performance, featuring a 34mm case size, a popular choice during the era that offers a versatile and balanced look. This vintage piece carries a sense of nostalgia and represents a significant chapter in Rolex's rich heritage. Crafted from 14K yellow gold, it's a true icon for the classic design, historical significance, and timeless elegance Rolex watches are known for.

 

With its 34mm case diameter, this timepiece showcases a 14K yellow gold case and a matching fluted bezel, a favored option for luxury watches during that time. The silver dial features a date display at 3 o'clock amplified by a Cyclops lens, making it easy to read at first glance. The Rolex crown logo is positioned at 12 o'clock, adding to its iconic appeal. Additionally, a water resistance rating of 100 meters makes it suitable for daily activities.

 

 

This timepiece features a brown leather strap giving it a classic appearance. Furthermore, its 14K yellow gold bracelet boasting a three-piece link design enhances the watch's versatility for a more stylish look, adds to the aesthetic appeal, and ensures durability and comfort on the wrist.

 


The Rolex Date is powered by Rolex's caliber 1565 movement - a self-winding mechanical movement that provides accurate timekeeping and has a power reserve of approximately 48 hours. The solid case back seals the case with an ideal simplicity of luxury and refinement.

 

 

The Rolex Date combines the timeless elegance of yellow gold with the reliable performance of Rolex's automatic movement. It represents a classic and luxurious timepiece from the era and remains highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts today.
