SOLD - Vintage 1960 Rolex ref. 1507 in Solid 18k Yellow Gold Caliber 1570 Automatic Oyster Date
This is a very fine Rolex Oyster Date ref. 1507 in solid 18k yellow gold. Usually, I'm not that excited about an essentially all gold Rolex. But this one is different showing off an almost identical champaign color as the finely finished solid 18k gold case with a rarer bark super high polish bezel - this Rolex says bling and class at the same time, and it's believable. A tough trick to pull off. You can identify more with this viewing the first picture using natural lighting. Executed using caliber 1570, this is a highly finished & decorated chronometer grade in-house Rolex movement with 26 jewels and adjusted to 5 positions. Many collectors agree that the caliber 1570 is the best (technically and finish wise) Rolex caliber ever produced. This is a near mint example with the factory original champagne dial and signed Rolex crown. All serial numbers and ref. numbers; hallmarks etc are where they are supposed to be. The diameter is 34mm without the crown and this piece is on a high end replacement leather strap with gold tone buckle. You'll love the feel of solid 18k yellow gold; it's heavy but balanced and feels very warm. The piece is beautiful and as many Rolex fans know, this piece will likely only appreciate in value as it does every year. We recently purchased a Rolex aftermarket dark brown leather croc strap with a Rolex gold plated (crown type) buckle which will come with this watch along with the strap shown.
