Rolex Oyster Date Ref. 1501


Vintage Rolex 34mm Oyster Date, Silver Dial, Oyster Bracelet, Ref. 1501

Rolex’s Date was introduced in 1950, five years after the better known Datejust that was launched for the 40th anniversary of Rolex. Practically the same as a Datejust, the Date 1501 is a slightly smaller 34mm,  which may make it an attractive option for slimmer wrists. The Oyster Date reference 1501 was only the second generation of the watch, which was updated to receive a new caliber movement. Although robust, the caliber 1575 in this circa 1980 model did not yet have a quickset date. Because the uncommon style of engine-turned bezel is both no longer produced by Rolex and was produced in lower numbers, the bezel helps to add to the collectability. In addition, this reference 1501 uses an acrylic crystal and it is the last generation of the watch to all have lug holes on the case. The fact that this is a lesser know Rolex with features no longer produced, it makes for an especially interesting and charmingly nostalgic piece.

Rolex Datejust Ref. 16220


Pre-Owned Rolex 36mm Datejust, Silver Dial, Jubilee Bracelet, Ref. 16220

Introduced in 1989, the reference 16220 upgraded the movement that was in the previous Datejust reference but maintained the unique bezel type. This engine turned bezel has decorative grooves that attractively reflect the light while still being formed from steel, as opposed to the gold of later fluted bezels. This Datejust model was also the last to feature the engine turned bezel. The case was made from 316L steel (as opposed to the later 904L Oystersteel) and this case had thinner lugs, which gives this reference a sleeker appearance, if not a slightly more vintage appearance that has a charm all its own. The 16220 included caliber 3135, which was used for over 30 years and is considered one of the most robust Rolex movements ever. With this self winding mechanical movement comes the Quickset, which allows the date to advance independent of the time. One full rotation of the crown will advance the date by three days.
