Why We Love This Watch

The heart of the Rolex collection, the Oyster Perpetual Date, is a humble watch that has everything you need in a daily watch. Based on the Oyster case made in 1926, which made it the first waterproof wristwatch, it was then tested by Mercedes Gleitze, who strapped it on her wrist while swimming across the English Channel for 10 hours! The Oyster watch made it fine and eventually, in 1931, it added the "Perpetual" moniker by basically being the first self-winding mechanism with a Perpetual rotor. This watch basically gave birth to the automatic watch and as such, Rolex took it to the next level by making it something more: a luxurious tool watch.

With a gold case and a dial to match, simply put, this is one elegant Rolex. Gold watches can be very intimidating to wear due to its strong impression and luxury, however, Rolex is such masters when it comes to subtlety and they were able to tone down such a strong, but a precious element. A smooth bezel with clean lines and the trademark "cyclops" date, it still has its tool roots visible, however, the same features can make this a very wearable watch even for non-gold lovers! A brand that needs no convincing for you to enter luxury, Rolex continues to pull off surprises here and there and this gold Oyster Perpetual Date 1500 is one of them.
