1982 ROLEX OYSTERDATE Vintage Mens Blue Dial Watch with Date - Stainless Steel

Authentic Rolex in Gorgeous Condition - Fully Serviced ($495) - 1 Year Warranty

Today's offering proudly showcases this impressive Certified Pre-Owned mens Rolex Oysterdate in gorgeous restored condition - on the wrist it presents virtually like a new Rolex. The photos couldn't begin to do it justice!

The Oysterdate Precision have become desirable non-sport vintage Rolex watches because their understated and classic design contrast the "busier" look of some of the modern Rolex watches. It's a watch that is at home being worn everyday or only for special occasions. Produced from the early 1950's into the 1980's, it was a strong commercial success for Rolex, winning a large following. The watch showcased in this offering is one of the last Oysterdates made.

It measures 35mm in diameter - in between the size of a Rolex Date and a Datejust.

Powering the watch is its original Rolex Caliber 1225 handwound movement with date and shock resistance.

It has fully Rolex parts and has just finished a true expertly done restoration. Our photos couldn't do it justice.

Its case presents as mint. It has nice beefy lugs that have not been significantly polished. Its Rolex dial has been meticulously restored - its printing could pass as Rolex factory done to the naked eye. Its case presents as mint. Overall it presents in gorgeous condition, freshly expertly refurbished close to like new.

As part of the restoration a Master Watchmaker has fully serviced the watch which consists of fully disassembling the movement, carefully inspecting each part, replacing any overly worn components, reassembling and lubricating the movement, replacing all of the waterproofing seals with new Rolex gaskets, and extensive timing testing and regulation (a $495 value).

Its movement is very clean. It contines to keep time on par with a brand new Rolex in our tested face-up position. Photos of the inside available upon request.

For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new calfskin leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

We also have two fine quality aftermarket bracelets available for purchase so you can choose which look you prefer or switch between them depending on how you feel. One is done in a Rolex Presidential style and one is done is a Rolex Oyster style. Both have heavy solid link designs and are adjustable and brand new. Please see the sample photos in the listing.

Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.

The pictures are of the actual watch for sale. We offer shipping the next business day to over 100 countries. In addition, we offer a 30 day no hassle money back guarantee if you don't absolutely love it so there's no risk to you!

You have many stores to choose from - thank you so much for choosing Connoisseur of Time, known for offering only the highest-grade fine watches like Rolex and Cartier with exceptional service for over 14 years.
