Rolex Oyster Perpetual Ref. 1500 History:
Introduced by Rolex in the early 1960s, the Oyster Perpetual Date Ref. 1500 quickly became known as the more cost effect option to it’s bigger brother - the Rolex Datejust. Coming in at 34mm the Oyster Perpetual Date Ref. 1500 is a great option for robust everyday wear while also looking classy with a suit and tie. Due to its size it also is a great option for smaller wrists, especially ladies. The in-house 1570 movement also powers the Rolex Datejust of the same era, this grants exceptional performance for the Oyster Perpetual Date Ref. 1500 for the fraction of the cost of a Datejust.
