Beautiful 1965 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date Gents Vintage Watch
Beautiful 1965 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date Gents Vintage Watch



The Overview
This is a beautiful example of the Stainless Steel Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date dating from 1965. The solid steel case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear – there’s a minor ‘ding’ on the outside case back and happy to send the original pictures if required. The original Rolex signed crisp white dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standard and is classically Rolex. The applied steel hour batons and steel hands flow into the dial and are perfectly framed by the smooth bezel – the steel Rolex signed screw down is working perfectly. The very high grade Rolex signed perpetual movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this beautiful watch we’ve added a new, high quality, Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches black crocodile skin strap with steel Hirsch buckle.
Watches of this quality and in this condition are extremely rare and highly sought after – if history is any judge they will only increase in value.
As mentioned, it has just been serviced by my watchmaker and, in view of the high-grade Swiss movement, I will include a 3 month guarantee on the movement which is long enough for you to assess the working order.

The Case
The provenance polished solid stainless steel screw back case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear and after a soft polish is gleaming – as mentioned, there is a minor ‘ding’ on the outside case back. The case measures 33 mm’s wide, excluding the Rolex signed winding crown and 40 mm’s, including the lugs. The inside back is signed ‘Montres Rolex SA Geneva Switzerland Patented’, ‘Stainless Steel’ and the case number of ‘1500’. The serial number is 1.15 million dating it to 1965.

The Dial
The original Rolex signed crisp white dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standard and is classically Rolex. The applied steel hour batons and steel dagger hands flow into the dial and are perfectly framed by the smooth bezel. The dial is signed ‘Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date’, ‘Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified’ and ‘T Swiss Made T’.

The Movement
The very high grade Rolex signed perpetual movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. The movement is signed ‘Montres Rolex SA Geneva Swiss’, ‘Twenty Six 26 Jewels’, ‘Adjusted 5 Positions and Temperature’ and the calibre is 1560. The movement number is ‘83823’.

The Strap
This watch sits on a new, high quality, Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches black crocodile skin strap with a steel Hirsch buckle.
