The manually winding caliber 1225 powers this watch under the hood. The watch comes on its original Oyster riveted bracelet with 11 links. There is little wear present on this watch for its age. The serial number starts with 1827XXX pointing to a 1968 production date. The watch is currently running smoothly at +8 seconds per day.

Rolex Oysterdate History:
The Rolex Oysterdate Precision is the understated little brother of the Rolex vintage catalog and is one of the most accessible entry points into the prestigious brand. Being one of Rolex's most basic watches featuring a date at 3 o'clock, this watch would steal a minimalist's heart. While the "Oysterdate" can be easily confused with the "Oyster Perpetual" and "Oyster Perpetual Date" ranges, it has allure within its own regard. Firstly the fact that the “Perpetual” label is missing from any branding alludes to the manual winding aspect of the watch - something of a rarity for this generation of Rolex's. More notably however is the lack of the chronometer certification text on the dial. In order to gain chronometer status a watch is tested for accuracy and stability at the The Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute. Only those proving to keep reliable time between -4/+6 seconds a day can wear the COSC-certified badge.
