Rolex "Oyster Perpetual Date 1500" men's Modern design wristwatch in stainless steel with solid gold bezel, circa 1977.

With its smooth gold bezel and champagne dial, this version of the "Date 1500" is elegant and understated. It is in excellent condition showing only light wear. Screwdown caseback is excellent and unengraved. The case measures 43mm long and 35mm wide. Original champagne finish sunburst dial is superb with some very minor patina on some of the applied gold markers. Has new date magnifier crystal. Gold screwdown crown is excellent. The watch is powered by its correct 26-jewel Rolex 1570 automatic movement, recently serviced and running strong.

The two-tone steel and gold plated bracelet is an aftermarket (non-Rolex) bracelet. I can also fit the watch with the plain black leather strap shown below, or a camel-coloured Italian Boar strap.
