If you're in the market for an entry-level vintage Rolex watch, consider the stainless steel Oyster Perpetual ref. 1003. In addition to offering an affordable stainless steel finish, the ref. 1003 also boasts a simple, time-only dial and modest proportions via a 34mm Oyster case and a fold-over link Jubilee bracelet. The case was originally waterproof up to 100 meters, which has offered considerable protection for the perpetual movement within. The result is a timepiece that continues to read true and should remain accurate for many years to come. The ref. 1003 also features a matching silver dial, which is topped with silver indices and hands and a Rolex logo at the 12-hour marker.
*All Pre-Owned Rolex watches are guaranteed to be 100% genuine and certified authentic. All watches are shipped to fit the average size wrist (7 1/4" - 7 1/2" for men and 6 1/4" - 6 1/2" for women). Additional links can be purchased if needed.
I was initially hesitant about ordering my first pre-owned Rolex via Bob's Watches, since I am used to handling and viewing watches in person more often than not before buying. But I'd heard great things about Bob's, so I took a chance. And this watch is gorgeous. It's exactly as described: some light wear on the bracelet and case, but the patina on the dial is absolutely beautiful and the hands and markers are stunning.
