if you prefer a time-only vintage Rolex, the ref. 1003 may be the perfect watch for your wrist. In addition to offering a sleek dial sans date display, the Oyster Perpetual also boasts a smaller 34mm case diameter for a modest stance on the wrist. As an older preowned Rolex, the ref. 1003 also utilizes a thicker acrylic crystal over the dial, older-style dauphine hands, and a river-link Oyster bracelet secured by a Fliplock clasp. Additionally, the luminous material on the dial has aged to a striking patina, adding tremendously to the character of this vintage timepiece.

I ordered this watch as a Birthday present for myself, and I couldn’t be more happy! The presentation box and the certification was beyond expectations! The watch itself is gorgeous, I already have couple more bands on the way So yeah, Happy Birthday to me!
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.
